A bit of weaving...........

The AVL was working much better today since I replaced the USB cable - at least that's what I'm assuming the issue was for it going wack-a-do. It worked fine all afternoon so hopefully that was it, those cables do go bad. There's still the issue with harnesses not raising occasionally but I've had that issue for 4 years. In March AVL admitted that was a problem and will fix it when I (and others) send back our dobby boxes for repair. I'll do that as soon as the loom is empty.

This is one of my original drafts - a 32 H twill based on Iranian Tilework. Next scarf on the warp will have a golden/mustard weft. Then the final one will have a pale lavender weft...........unless I change my mind before I have time to get back to the loom..........

In two days we have gone from winter to summer - what happened to spring???  Temps are supposed to come back down by the weekend, I'm hoping that forecast is right as I'm not ready for summer yet, I want some beautiful spring weather.


  1. Yes, it got downright hot today. I hate summer and I sure am not ready for it! That scarf is awesome Cindie. I remember when you did that pattern before. Didn't you enter one in something ( and get a list prize for?), a couple of years ago?

    1. Yes, I did win something for this same draft (a scarf) in the Webs 40th Anniversary Contest/Show. I hadn't woven it since that warp with 4 scarves on it. This warp was also for my guild challenge where we picked countries names out of a hat and had to weave something inspired by our country. Mine was Iran.

  2. That is really a beautiful pattern. The blue weft looks great, and I can't wait to see mustard and lavender.

    Congrats on the win!

  3. The pattern and color is scrumptious! And I totally agree about the weather. I am so NOT ready for summer. After the winter we just had we deserve some real spring time!


I love your comments - thank you!
