Funny Farm

A fearsome foray into my fiber follies. I talk about weaving, knitting, spinning and dyeing. Some chatter about the sheep, goats, pigs and chickens.

The Arbitrary Warp

Charleen asked if the warp was threaded randomly and the answer is yes and no. I wound the warp using 6 balls of yarn all at once, in 4 colors. In that regard it is planned, kind of. When I threaded the reed I threaded from each 6 thread grouping but not necessarily keeping any order. There is some order or patterning in the warp but no consistently so. Clear as mud?

Hey, I followed that perfectly. Of course it might just say something about my thought processes too!

I like that idea. It could be the first step in the direction of random sleying for me.

I sent e-mail to your address, help! I have not heard from you, and can only speculate that you cannot get e-mail to me either. We are cyber stranded! Must we have all our conversations by phone, or perhaps here on the blog!!??!! Char-can you send me Marie's g-mail address?
