Long and Winding Warps
I just finished winding and mailing the warps for my NEWS class. I had a ball designing and winding warps for other people to weave. I think I have come to a point in my weaving life at which the actual weaving is somewhat anti-climactic. I really love the idea/design part. I find the winding and dressing meditative and pleasant, and I enjoy the first couple of inches of weaving because I get to see the idea become reality. But weaving off the entire warp is a chore, and I often find myself thinking about the next project (or dinner, or laundry . . .) as I weave.
So, getting to design and wind 10 different warps without having to weave them off was fantastic:))
I also need to sing the praises of weavers in general. I don’t know if the weavers I know are particularly wonderful or if wonderfulness is a characteristic of the breed, but it is a great thing to share an obsession with such great people. Lucky!!!
