At last, the warp threads are stretched on the loom. Tomorrow there will be spacing adjustments, putting on heddles, and weaving headers – if I can get through that much.
Alas, I have a cold.
Warp is 2-ply worsted Jaggerspun wool in a natural color. Tapestry is weft-faced weaving, so in the end the warp threads will only show in the fringe – but they will be there, strong and invisible, holding all the patterns and pictures together. So, what, I wonder, is the warp in my life, the invisible pattern under the visible? A meditation for after the sneezing has stopped.
