A bit of weaving

My salt level is now normal and life is returning to normal. I got to the bottom of my I tray the other day. And I have done a load of small jobs. Yesterday I wove some inches on the Schacht. A bit slow but correct!

The Sewing Bee started up last Tuesday and I was inspired to think of making a jacket. The trouble is sizing. Do I make a jacket to fit me now or one size up in case I get better bigger. Or can I not do a fitted jacket. I will have to consult Jill Arnold. I have four jacket lengths in my cupboard

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.
