I'm ready for 2012

A weaver friend, Patty Huffer, came over for lunch today, knowing that I wanted to pick her brain about weaving. Specifically about some of the problems that I have been having...

Turns out, they have all been tension-related, whether from skipping a step when winding on (I knew I was supposed to pull on the warp, but I forgot...), or not using the correct warp separater on the Dorset(she brought me cardboard), or not keeping track of how I hold the shuttle differently on the right and left sides (makes the selveges different...).

There were lots of light-bulb moments, and lots of laughter!

When we pronounced my brain full, and hers empty, we had brunch - Dutch Apple Pancake - yummy!

So, now, when the orders from Halcyon and Henry's Attic come in, I'll be armed and dangerous...

Happy New Year!!


  1. So...that's how you "tied one on" for New Years?!

    Happy weaving in the New Year!

  2. So when are you coming to see me again?

  3. Hi's the link to my Dutch recipes.
    I am totally spoiled when it comes to fibre and I will never be able to spin it all....I think it's an addition!

  4. Does she do out-of-state house calls?
