    Oh, those leaves and the lichen, nearly as beautiful as the scarfs.

    Fun buckles – I wonder what they will become? It was an amazing windy day yesterday, love the blankets of leaves. What are the students making – or are they samples?

      students weave a scarf – they get to take something home. Also learn to wind 2 threads at once, weave with 2 shuttles and a floating selvedge, hemstitch and twist the fringe.
      Velma, it’s a pretty (or not so pretty!) steep learning curve.

    your comment about your students brought me right back to my first four harness loom weaving. how it was such a mess (though i followed directions) to me and i just had to believe mrs. belfer at each step, how it somehow got tied on, and then weaving began, and another whole craziness as we explored patterns on that sampler. the fun part, indeed!
