Warp Speed-Update

is actually quite slow. . .

Remember how I said I was going to spend Sundays all year by first Doing Something For Me?

I may rethink that one.

Seriously. I spent the better part of the day warping about 1/3 of the width of the Flip. I'm sure that it will get easier with practice. (And the fact that I won't try doing on the floor again is sure to help.)

And now, I can truthfully say that I am completely warped. . .or at least the loom is.

Real weavers will probably snicker when they read it, but I used crochet cotton for the warp. If my Webs order comes tomorrow (not likely), I will use the cotton chenille (yes, that stuff I swore I would never, ever buy more of) for the weft. If it's not here, I have decisions to make involving wool, acrylic, and other stuff.


You're a real weaver. You have a loom. It is warped.

Then again may not be "real" until there are a few inches of weaving on it. Don't ask me, I'm making it up as I go along.
Looks like so much fun! Enjoy learning a new craft.
