Woven shibori scarves continue to come off my loom. They don’t look like much at this point, no color, but color there will be,… indigo blue!
The scarves are looked over for any problems or skips that will need to be repaired.
The scarves are gathered, first on one side and knots are tied. Then the other side is very tightly gathered and knotted to create the needed resist to allow the “pattern” to show, which comes from the threading, tie-up, treadling, and tabby rows between pattern rows.
A deadline has become uncomfortably close, and I am far behind. Two months of making socks placed me behind my schedule before the end of 2014. A tooth infection closely followed by the flu, then a wildlife run for an eagle, and the ensuing discomfort in my right hand from experiencing its talons (even wearing welders gloves) is making me a bit panic-y about meeting my goals. We’ll see.
Meanwhile, I have 10 days (and nights) and I’d better return to the loom and finish weaving another scarf,… or two. I know the end of the warp is there somewhere but I can’t seem to reach it!
