Learning a new language

How many languages do you speak? I speak several fluently: knitting, crocheting, spinning, and dyeing. Since January, I've been learning a new language: weaving.

I thought I would be a faster study, but it's taken longer than anticipated to get the syntax, the acronyms, the lingo. Sett, heddle, castle, brake, warp, woof are just a few of the many many terms I'm learning.

I'm starting a new job tomorrow. I ended my last job on 1 June. And in between, I've been taking weaving language lessons. As of today, I've put together, warped and woven all of 10" of a fabulous silk twill. It's a start!


  1. Wow! I love that picture of you concentrating so hard on your project! Makes me want to dig out my wee 24" table loom!

  2. Ha! You and I speak the same languages! Cool! Your weaving looks super!
