It’s happened again

How did this could have happened again?

I told everyone that it just wasn’t going to happen, but it has. Two at a time weaving! It seems that someone around here is a glutton for punishment!

However, like all the other experimenting lately, a lesson is learned each time. Both of these are simple, as to the weaving. Straightforward ikat on the left and a plain stripe on the right. Weaving progresses at the same rate, so that I can use the loom beater. Both are pretty narrow (18 inches), but they will have different lengths. 

Two at a time–again!

My frustration has been great as I try new things. When something doesn’t turn out like the picture in my head, all I can think of is how much time has been wasted, time that I don’t have. On the other hand, if I don’t try new things, I stagnate. Besides, I’ve got a pretty low boredom threshold and I like to learn new things. So, I’m trying to look at each experiment as a learning experience and to see what I can learn that will carry me on the next try.


This has been going on for a while now, the feeling that I’ve got to do something different. The problem is that I don’t know what that “something different” is. So many ideas, so little focus! Should I put all the ideas in a grab bag, and pull out an idea to stick with? How does one choose? Help!
