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.
Well I am almost ready to go--seems I always say that and then I make an error slaying the reed or something really dumb. Have been thinking about why I like rep weave so much and I think it is because there is a rhythm to the threading much as there is a rhythm to knitting. There is also the geometric aspect--I like it when the calculations work --its truly magic. Will have to let it rest for a few days, am having a house full for Thanksgiving-so it looks like Sunday or Monday--that's OK it will be fun to have family here for the holiday.
My "Penny Rug" animals are done. It was such a fun project--they seemed to grow right out of the felt. I have another one in my head---birds---but I think it has to wait for a bit. I have a sweater that needs some attention first. I almost have my rep weave warped and am anxious to get that going.
