So Different

I’ve finished weaving NS’s baby wrap and started on her friend HM’s. The marine weft and the pale green weft look so different, as I knew they would.

At first I wasn’t sure how I liked the pale green, but it’s definitely growing on me. Usually I like the ‘front’ of the baby wrap better – that is, the side I see when I’m weaving. For this one, I’m not sure, and won’t be able to make up my mind until I see it off the loom.

After these wraps I need to weave an order for an alpaca & silk scarf for a friend. That will go soooo quickly compared to baby wraps!

  • Interesting to say the least. I am intrigued with only a couple projects behind me at how you do what you do so well. Thanks for sharing.

      The answer to weaving well is the same as the answer to that old saw, “How do you get to Carnegie Hall?”….practice, practice, practice.

      Malcolm Gladwell said if you want to master something you have to do it for 10,000 hours. Some people think 5,000 is sufficient, but that’s still a lot of hours.

      Stick with it!
