Really quick, I have not been spinning too much recently. My lovely Ladybug has gained a weird clunking noise, it really is only a couple of years old, and so I have not been enjoying spinning as much. I found out that a little black hexnut on my wheel is quite loose, I have contacted Schacht and expect a fix really quickly. So I will be back to spinning soon. Until then, Weaving!
Removable white board tape is a new thing. I purchased a sewing table/box/thing that had to panels beside the cubbies that were blank white walls. I wanted to be able to make notes on them so I bought restickable whiteboard tape and LOVE the effect. That has little to do with weaving, except that it is the advent of my obsession with this type of tape. I decided when I was having a bit of trouble deciding what threading pattern to use next on my random twill I would use the tape to keep track of things. That looks something like this:
Well I can never leave good enough alone. Since this is a variable twill, and I do not know when I will get time to work on it again, I decided to record where I left off on the front of the loom. It is my loom, I bought it second hand and an amazing guild member delivered it for me, but I do not really want to lose the sticker that contains information about what loom it is. So instead of putting a piece over the front of the entire loom, I used a smaller piece off to one side of the loom. That looks like this:
These are just a couple of things that I have come up with to improve my weaving life and make things easier for myself.
