Back after a long hiatus

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.


  1. It's good to see you back!

  2. I can't wait to see your renewed progress! Welcome back!

  3. Yay missed you! Yay string!!!

  4. Where's the rest?! What happened?! Did you finish it? What further hurdles did you have to overcome? Are there any more pictures? Oh please, please, don't leave me/us hanging here at the edge of the cliff! (And I do hope the awful silence isn't due to further life and family mishaps...) I shall have to search hard to find any sequel on the Interweave; oh I do hope there's a happy ending, with a justly proud weaver (you) and satisfied wearer (Il Patrone)...
