Well, not exactly. I just ran out of the scrumptious possum-merino-silk in the color charcoal while measuring my warp; 500g gave me just a little over half the width of the shawl I planned.
Meanwhile, I found some more inspirations with the Pacific theme in my friend Maureen's web site; I love the name "Windsands Weaving". Composite images of some of her small items gave me a hint for my next warp instead.
Martin Rodgers' farewell went swimmingly last Friday, and it gave me some kind of a closure, or a sense of inevitability; I just need to cope without him.
