My loom was empty and that is not a happy sight in my eyes. It also tends to make Abby just a little bit squirmy. (Abby is my muse) Abby said, "The loom is naked! Would you want to sit there naked for the world to see?" It is easier to appease her - plus it keeps me moving along. A friend was visiting so I said "Pick a number, 1, 2 or 3." I had three warps ready to go on the loom, but I didn't want to make a decision. This way Abby can't tell me I chose the wrong one, ha ha. He chose #3 and I put it on the loom. Fortunately, this friend doesn't mind that I work while he visits. He even helps at times.
Once the warp is rolled on and the tension is adjusted, the loom is ready to weave. I love seeing a fresh warp on the loom. It glows with possibilities. This warp is all cotton and rayon. You may see some fuzzy bits on the yellow especially at the back right of the loom. That is a fun textured thread. It will add interest to the finished cloth. Besides, Abby loves it.
Of course, I haven't woven on it yet because Abby kept asking about the improv block. She said that I needed to "improve" the improv. (I think that was a jibe since I didn't proofread my last post and put "improve" instead of "improv" three times - Hey, at least I was consistent.) So, I added to it and made it into a 16.5" square block.
Maybe now Abby will let me do some housework. But I have to agree with her motto "Housework is no fun!" She thinks life should be filled every minute with creative joy. Of course, isn't that the job of a muse?
