Warp 3 Woven

This is a section of Warp 3 woven up. The pattern is supposed to come and go and is probably best scanned in. A photo taken head on shows very little. This at least shows where the pattern is!

It is weaving up without too much trouble which is just as well as I want to finish it by Wednesday night.

Today I spent five hours writing the lawyer a letter, looking up customer numbers and scanning in invoices and statements. I see him tomorrow. But before that I have to search our safe deposit box at the bank to see if some missing documents are there. It bothers me that things are so complicated for me and I am not exactly your little old lady widow. I suspect a lot of people don't even know that they have got it wrong.


  1. Kind of like taxes & a few other things in life--too complicated for ordinary people & full of ambiguity :-(

    I didn't write before, following the death of your husband, but I've been reading your blog since its inception. I love seeing all the things you manage to pack into your life, & I'm very impressed by the way you "soldier on" through whatever life throws at you. I admire your courage & perseverance.

  2. Lovely colors in that warp! I look forward to seeing it off the loom (and on the scanner?).

About Me

I am weaver and - -. I dye my yarns with acid dyes, I paint my warps, put fabric collages and stencils on my weaving. I have three looms, a 12 inch wide, 12 shaft Meyer for demos and courses, a 30 inch Louet Kombo which is nominally portable but has a stand, two extra beams and a home-made device containing a fan reed. And last a 32 shaft Louet Megado which is computer controlled, has a sectional warp and a second warp beam and I am the proud owner of an AVL warping wheel which I love to bits and started by drilling holes in. I inserted a device for putting a cross in. I have just acquired an inkle loom and had a lesson from an expert so I can watch TV and weave at the same time. I am interested in weaving with silk mostly 60/2 although I do quite a bit with 90/2 silk. I also count myself as a bookbinder with a special interest in Coptic binding.
