Many inches forward and now one back
Wednesday, November 18, 2020
Got to the loom house early this morning - early before the village is even open now that we are on winter hours (11am-3pm). I planned on only being in the loom house since I had to be back in Iowa City for a meeting in early afternoon.
First things first, got my temple installed.
It is about 1/2" too short but it helps me keep the edges out. Note to self: order another one.
So it's merrily weaving away time. I have good radio and then great Pandora channel; good conversation with the managing director as she is unlocking the buildings; later answering questions for another village member who, I think, is writing an article for the newsletter or fundraising materials because he had many questions about the fact that I did all the fundraising which enabled us to get all the textile equipment repaired and refurbished.
It was only after he left that I noticed something was off. When I weave a pattern I try to have the last shot of the pattern always end up going in the same direction, in this case, right to left. I suddenly noticed that I was going left to right on the last shot. Uh Oh!
I started unweaving but I am not seeing any place where I made a mistake. Took the temple off the fabric, took off my glasses so I could look really close, and Ta Da!!
See the line right above the pin? Two threads going across in exactly all the same spots? Grrrrr! MISTAKE!
I still have an inch of weaving to take out to correct the mistake. Total unweaving is 1.5". Not really that bad to do. It's just not moving forward.
My time was up or I would miss my meeting so this is waiting for me when I return. Nice to know exactly what I will be working on first thing in the door!
