All Wound Up

This could be the most cheerful warp I ever made, which is interesting considering the seeds for this project came from such places as illnesses, death and prayers. But I like what I see, and I'm glad I made an 8-meter warp. I think it reflects my attitude to life. 

I was hoping to start threading today, but I dithered and dithered and vacuumed the stash room, among other things.  No excuses, just procrastinating, in the same way I used to eat my veggies first because I disliked veggies as a child.

Is there a psychologist in the room?

Two in one day! Cally's handspun, Navajo-plied tussah silk, and Mette's lovely autumnal silk.

  3. Thanks, Sonya. I am actually looking forward to this; the structure is going to be super simple, so I can concentrate on weft colors as I weave.

    At least that's the plan for now.

  4. I must say that the picture of the weft makes me very, very happy. It is cheerful and as you say, that's interesting considering the source of the inspiration!
