Welcome To My blog--my name is Barb and I am a weaver in a small town in Wisconsin called Dell. Actually it is more of a place than a town but I love living in the middle of nowhere. I am a weaver and my studio name is"COULD HAVE BEEN A PIANO" I always said I was going to learn how to play the piano, but as luck would have it I met a wonderful group of women weavers and was hooked. I have been weaving for three years or so but have been addicted to fiber since I started knitting when I was about 10. I still love to knit and do some spinning and dying as well. I love natural fiber and texture. I like to use thrift store finds and use my imagination.
One of the truths that I always try to live by is "that if you can't do it right, you can always do it over." I figure that works for most people, except maybe if you are a brain surgeon. So I whacked it. It really wasn't that painful to do--I had a mess. So I did some thinking and decided I would make a chain for every inch of the warp and put them on the loom as I made them. This seemed to work much better.
So I think this will work out--don't know if you are supposed to use tape on the warp but these puppies are not getting tangled if I can help it! I have 10" done--only 21 to go!!!
