Changes, flux, etc


Wari, private collection

Do you ever feel like everything is in flux? That’s where I’ve been for weeks, or maybe months. I seem to flutter back and forth between doing the weft ikat and tapestry, between wider sett and closer sett, between linen, cotton or wool warp. Why can’t I settle down to one thing?

Although I like the heft of the linen warp, but I don’t like working with it. If I stick with 4 epi, I will go back to wool, which also has problems. The Swedish cotton sitting on my shelf is 12/9 and 12/6.

Because of some ideas rolling around in my head, I am thinking of cutting off the linen and putting on a new warp of cotton. Kind of silly, but … Now to decide which sett to use.

By the way, the British dictionary definition of flux: continuous change; instability. Yep, that’s me. I don’t even want to think about the medical definition on the same page.

Do you ever go through these indecisive times? How do you solve it?
