Not, alas, for the fly shuttle. I can’t find the right diameter of cord in the local hardware places, so I will have to order some online. I bought a hank of finer cord, hemmed and hawed about it for a bit, and decided to use it on the Varpapuu instead.
So the grotty cords (that’s for you, Katie) seen on 1st January…
…have been replaced thus:
I’ve arranged it so that cords don’t go through the holes in the apron rod any more, because I prefer to be able to slip off the outer loops when the warp is narrow. As I use this loom for demonstrating and sampling, the warp usually is pretty narrow.
I haven’t got much further with Actual Weaving, though I have started making a warp for the Megado and spent a lot of time tinkering with drafts of different kinds. My head is reeling from the quantity of email coming in re CW: more than two hundred messages in the last seven days. Whoa. But I am learning not to multi-task: when I go to the studio, I focus on studio things. And I have dusted off my special mug to help.
