Three weeks ago, I got this “GREAT” idea to weave some scarves from my handspun to take to the Jacob Sheep Breeders Association annual general meeting. I have two looms – a 48″ 8 harness Macomber and a 24″ 8 harness Macomber (love Macombers!). The 48″ is warped for rugs – 24″ at 6 epi. The 24″ is warped for huck lace – 11″ at 14 epi. Gosh, which loom would work best for a 6″ scarf?? Yeah, I know, but I went with the 48″ loom. The sett is too open and I’m ending with a weft faced scarf rather than the balanced weave I was thinking of. I keep trying ways to salvage the handspun warp. Give it up, Linda! it’s time to cull! There is nothing worse than trying to finish a project that you are not happy with – just because you feel you “need” to finish it. It’s a little like keeping a Jacob ewe that doesn’t much grab you , but because of her bloodlines you keep breeding her. Every spring you hope that she will produce something you like better than you like her. HMMM — do I see a parallel? I cull ewes that don’t produce and I’m cutting that warp off my loom RIGHT NOW! It will never be anything I’m proud of.
