Lessons Taught by Weaving
I've spent part of my afternoon weaving, as is evident from the above photo, and I learned again the lessons of patience and not overdoing. I finished up the yarn in my bobbin and so needed to wind another. The cone with the yarn was nearly empty, and I decided that finishing it all off in one winding would be a good plan. The fuller the bobbin, the longer it would last, or so said my logical brain. But in fact, the bobbin was overfilled, and then it became tangled, and so whatever time I would have saved by not having to wind as many bobbins was definitely lost when I had to untangle gobs of yarn. More is not necessarily better. In any case, I'm happy to be weaving and my new "Charlotte" works wonderfully well and she is definitely a better fit for my overcrowded living room. I've posted a few more photos on my Photo of the Day page (see the link at the top of this blog) if you want to see the larger view of the room.
