During this last week, I warped my loom for my NEWEST PROJECT - RAVELRY LINK where I am taking my weaving journey to the next step. As always, when you are learning new skills...the journey isn't always a smooth one.
I consulted with a weaving friend to make sure I was interpreting the pattern right for this project and we both thought what I thought was right. Wrong! I warped the loom backwards and I am currently weaving the project with the bottom side up. Any photos I share are from me being under the loom. Gaaaaaaa! We thought that I should follow the arrows so I warped my loom from right to left instead of left to right and I am weaving from the bottom up. Well, it appears I should have warped from left to right and then bottom up. Yes, I could have torn it all apart and started over but...as you have read my blog, you know I'm too darn stubborn for that ;-)
It's all good. A great way to give incentive to weave so one can see their productivity. Bahahahaha That's my justification.
I have also been spinning. I have a few skeins I will share in a future post.
