Using up every little bit

Wednesday, September 09, 2020

Last week I finished the second scarf of the barn frame loom but it looked like a lot of warp left on the loom so I thought "Hmmm. Table Runner? Small bag?" and kept weaving. Today I got to the end of piece three. But I wanted to weave every little bit of length that I could.

On this photo look at how far out of plumb the vertical bar is at the far side of the loom. Kind of in the middle of the wheel.

This was the back of the loom.

Very little between the beater (on the right) and the dowel (on the left). I make this a success. I will cut everything apart and see what I have. Then it will be hem the whatever and ply the fringe on the scarves.

Tomorrow at the village I will be cleaning the loom to get all the threads and fuzzies off the loom and floor underneath. Then on to the next project!

    I love your “let’s see what I can do with this” attitude. I need to be thinking of where I want to focus creative energies now that I’m retired. Writing? Piano repertoire? Finish my everlasting embroidered tablecloth? Start a new sketch pad? Something new?

    Always like it when I finish a project and don't have a bunch of left overs and have no idea what to do with it.

    To me this is rocket science! But so fascinating, and a skill to be admired!

    Great job! I didn’t really understand what happened here, but I got the fact that you used all of something and there wasn’t any waste. Thanks for more knowledge! I always, always learn something new from you. Usually the knowledge pushes me in a new direction, sometimes it gives me a word to look up. Kind of a clue.
