Nkwali Third Day

More of the same except we were taken on a bush walk. We were surprised to find that an armed guard from the Park Department had to go with us, rifle and all. We inspected footprints and droppings and - -. The evening had a highlight which was watching elephants wade across the river. Unexpected by the guide.

The other group had a much younger baby which hung onto its mother's tail in the deep bit of the river.

You can see the nicely braided tail on the zebra here. These were of a herd of 20 or so.

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.
