another adventure of the kamikaze weaver

treating the surface
weaving along planC. the border was-note the tense- silk and was more of a p.i.t.a. that what i wanted to deal with, especially with my time constrictions. so i was time to call the kamikaze weaver!!
the border threads were not on the warp beam, but on live tensioning so the whole move was not very complicated.

 i treadled a plain weave shed, inserted the sticks to keep the order, pulled the border threads forward and began tying on a new border of 30/2 ecru cotton. after that i wove a couple of plain weave shots,
 pinned the new border to the body of the weaving to close the gap and went on weaving. not too elegant, but efficient as an executive secretary.

a decision aka life's too short

the order

the grungy border of the photos are full of double intentions!
on another note a fellow weaver, maryse levenson lost all her belongings in the recent colorado fires.needless to say her weaving library, tools and supplies were all destroyed.please consider donating  books, yarns or any weaving related item to help her build up her stash. she is interested in  kumihimo and  complex weaves at 24 epi or finer( silk, tencel, bamboo, merino etc). you can contact her at maryse-dl  at   comcast   dot   net

  1. Aren't you clever! That solution looks as if it worked perfectly. Sometimes I think that being a good weaver can be summarized as the ability to improvise solutions that do what we need them to do. Brava!

  2. Mia cara, sarà un'altra vittoria!
