an obs*es/si*on

selvedge

with the perfect selvedge. even if it's going to be cut off. it's one of those inexplicable things, perhaps because of the view it gives when weaving. i think the best compliment, especially if coming from another weaver, is that your selvedges are good.

silk shuttle

my japanese silk shuttle a simple elegant tool as all things japanese and  works very well on narrow looms such as mine.


silk and wool shuttles





then there is the wool shuttle. it is amazing what the small tug of the spring does.


but what i'm really obsessed with is the lack of bon ton bon goût of most males in this country.
these gentlemen(?)seem to aim at setting the clock back to pre constitutional times.
shame on you perez reverte. and you're not a politician you're an intellectual.




 have a good weekend.

Neki, I visited 2 nice exhibitions go to www.fowler.ucla.edu look into exhibitions: weaver's stories and nini towok's spinning wheel.

  6. I used to like Reverte, but after reading two or three of his novels I realized that he's a bit of a one-trick pony -- basically: "Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die."

    Oh, yes, very nice selvedges indeed. And this from a knitter!
