Winter can be a struggle for me. That seasonal depression thing. Also, the older I get, the physical demands of dealing with snow and cold and ice are harder - and more irritating.
The weather has settled finally a little bit and I've made it to the loom more, as well as a visit to friends in my old home town. That helped the attitude a little :)
I've been weaving colors on my basic dark and light striped warp.
I'm about halfway done with this warp, so I'm thinking on the next.
An order for rug warp is on the way, and as soon as that arrives I believe I will jump in and work on a full width warp for a customer. Believe it or not, I have never done that yet! I'm not sure how many revolutions I will go with yet. Not sure I want that many high price rugs in my inventory.
I'm also contemplating after that warp to reduce the width of my standard rugs to 12 sections, or 24/25 inches. I think I will try it. Less warp, less weft, and a bit less $ per rug. It will be an experiment. I do have a few that width from a single warp back a couple years and also a few 18 inch wide rugs from the same sort of project.
I've been getting requests for mug rugs. I probably should try some, but they sure seem piddly!
All for now,
