Wet Finish: Sounds naughty to me!
At the college this week, I helped wrap warp (try saying that 5 times real fast) on a warping board for an "older" lady that has trouble standing. It was good for me to practice again. Had one oops, about cracked the top right post on the board. Seems I wrapped it a little to tight. Lesson learned!
Then the instructor set me up to weave some sample of a tweed pattern. This is my first try a changing from plain tabby weave. This is really fun. Have to pay attention to the sequencing of each row, and we added a second color. Will have to whip out my cell phone and take a few pictures of what I am dong there. So at the store I am going to set my little table top up with about a 5 inch wide set up and practice the patterns at home between classes. Can always use them as coasters or something.
Thought for the day: Egotism enables a man in a rut to think he is in the groove... unknown
