The family situation that pulled my attention away from weaving for so long has improved, and I am finding I have space in my life again for challenging yet inessential activities. Since I last posted here I have acquired the reference article I needed to read, learned a lot more about pre-Roman tapestry weaves, and mentally solved the last questions I had about how to weave this project. More on these issues as I get closer to the parts of the project where they become relevant; suffice it to say, there has been a lot of string-related squeeing around here in the past month or so.
Today I mended six broken warp threads—again, all from the
center of the warp. Then I checked the whole warp to make sure it's all
in good weaving order. I will spend some time this afternoon reviewing
my posts and notes to help me re-learn the dance. I'm glad I left
myself those breadcrumbs!
Tomorrow I hope to resume weaving after I go pick up the book the library has on hold for me.
