I'm still weaving away most days. Have 4 sofa throws ready to go to Pauanesia next week and am working away at the clear filament projects for my exhibition later in the year. It is so slow! I can't see if the threads are crossed, I place them neatly in the shed, close and beat, and sprong, they're all over the place and the selvedges ... just don't look, organic might describe them. I seem to remember from the last time I used this fibre thinking if the shuttles (stick) drop one more time the whole lot's going out the window. I was pretty close to it this afternoon! So what do you do? take a long walk along the beach, that's what. Relieves the spirit and the muscle tension.
Remember the pile of compost (thrums) in a previous post, about three posts back I think. Part of it is now yarn mixed with all sorts of things I found in the cupboard, combed silk, sari silk threads, Italian silk throwsters, slivers I deconstructed to pinch the blue. I plied it with a very fine (Tex 1/18) navy blue cashmere I had to hand to emphasise the handspun variety. I have about 220 metres so what will that make?
