Completing the collection is my 8 shaft custom built countermarch - in a state which I don't like to see. It's empty!
On the bench is the fabric I cut off yesterday, still to be washed and pressed. It is to be part of a jacket - if it works! I'll post a photo later if it does. In the foreground is part of a warp I was ready to rush into yesterday but some common-sense elf (or something) sitting on my shoulder whispered in my ear that I really should sample the yarn I was going to use with it for a warp as it is completely unknown and untried. I'm not even quite sure what it is but I'm calling it linen. I did a couple of samples and am still undecided. I want this to be a fabric length to enter into Creative Fibre 2013 National Exhibition so I want to get it right.
SO, will I finally get to put on a white linen warp for table runners/mats that has been waiting patiently? It's all set to start but I'm procrastinating . . .decisions . . . decisions.
In the meantime I've been tatting and used the non-weaving time to negotiate my way around a corner so I am pleased with myself on that front. It may not look much but believe me a corner is a big deal!
All this dithering reminds me of A.A. Milne's 'old sailor my grandfather knew who had so many things that he wanted to do . . .' I seem to have inadvertently taken him as a role model - not the most auspicious start to the year!
I'm not sure how/if this blog is going to continue . . . no promises and no new year resolutions.
