For once I’m not describing myself. This is what happened to my fly shuttle cord today.

Almost but not quite!

    Unfortunately that’s not a break that can be easily fixed, methinks. 🙁

    That is why all weaver needs a spool of braided polyester, along with all other necessities!
    (Somewhere I saw pics from a professional studio in, perhaps, Germany – the flyshuttle cord almost had more knots that unbroken bits. Maybe it is the same as they say about riders: you have to fall off 100 times before you “are” an equestrian?)

    And of course the useful length of cord that I found in the ‘useful lengths of cord’ box is too thick. Great start to the working year!

    Talk about holding on by a thread! Hope you can sort out the problem quickly and return to weaving with no hitches.

    You stopped the steaming locomotive just before it reached the desperate heroine tied to the tracks.
