"I walk (weave) slowly, but I never walk (weave) backward."
I sincerely hope you are safe & sane, coping & acclimatizing. My weaving life has dramatically changed since all my classes were cancelled through spring 2021. I have been trying to sort my priorities during this period of uncertainty. One of the things that I regrettably dropped when my teaching schedule was so full was my blog. I missed talking about weaving and spending time trying to commune/communicate beyond posting images on IG.
So, “back to the blog” is part 1 of my priority plan. Part 2 is something that I have wanted to do for a while, and the “if not now, when?” question has been dogging me since Covid 19 grounded me in March. So I am going to start featuring patterns on my site.
I will happily share some and others I will sell through Etsy. I have written many, many patterns for WEBS yarn store, for Handwoven magazine and for classes, and I really enjoy the process. I am excited to see what I can come up with when I am unfettered by editorial requirements. I am also excited to revisit some old projects and refresh them with new color/yarn ideas.
I will be writing about the projects as I develop them, and hopefully sharing some insights/information on the structures or the yarns as I work with them. I know this will be a slow process. Developing projects, weaving them, tweaking them, writing about them as well as editing and re-editing, all take time . . . hence the AL quote . . . slow, but hopefully not backwards.
