Threading Up

The last few days have been spent threading up the seamless garment. As there are 1500 threads, this is taking some time. Apart from that, not much else except a visit to Worcester Royal for some brain tests. 'Just in case'. I had a CT scan before Christmas. Now that all the tests are done, I see the consultant in a week or so. The only point of note is that the room for the tests contained a Parker-Knoll recliner chair in pale blue leather!!!! This was in the middle of the room and that was it for furniture. But it was very comfy.
On Monday evening I went to see Mr Turner at the local cinema. Well worth seeing.

And this was the view from my bedroom window this morning. Now off to do more threading up on the Megado. I hope to finish today and start weaving tomorrow.

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.
