…you look at the last few warp ends you’ve wound and realise that one of them is following its own unique path around the pegs? Or maybe that is just me.
In my defence, it was at the end of a very long day of warp-winding. I was switching colours by using various pegs to anchor the not-in-use-at-this-minute yarns, and I lost the plot somewhere. Then – of course! – I tried to slip the extra warp yarn out of the way, even though it was several ends back in the warp… Well, did I mention it was the end of a long day?
In the end I had to admit defeat and say goodbye to all this:
But now I have this…
…and I am relieved to report that all the intermediate steps went perfectly according to plan. Then I remembered a potential weft yarn I had forgotten about when I was sampling on my mini-warp, and I tried it, and I liked it a lot, and I may be revising the next part of the plan. I’ll decide tomorrow.
And thank you for all the cushion compliments! I need to make up some more, but I am trifling with thoughts of coordinating buttons instead of getting on with it.
In other random news, the ‘5’ on my laptop is not working reliably. I am wondering how I came to wear out the 5 before the other numbers, when you might think the 1 would be first to go. Must be all those 5s in my Swiss bank account number.
