It may have been Thomas Edison who is credited with the saying that creativity is 1% inspiration, 99% perspiration.
I'm at that stage now where it is eat-the-elephant. Once scarf, one warp, working up the perspiration in order to get as many of the painted warps woven as I possibly can before the end of August. Because the job isn't done at the weaving part - they still have to be fringe twisted and wet finished, then trimmed and tagged before they are really and truly ready for sale.
But I have my box of weft yarns now and the dyer is going to try to dye some 2/16 rayon in colours that I can't get from Silk City so I'm keeping fingers crossed that the yarn isn't too tender and that it will wind off of the dye skein without breaking.
I have sort of lost count but I do believe that the warp going into the loom tonight is #18, that I have so far woven 68 scarves. There are going to be 47 warps in all (if my count is accurate!) for a grand total of 188 scarves.
Now if they only sell....
And of course that isn't all that I need. I'm out of place mats and low on tea towels. But those can be done in September/October. It's the scarves that really take up the most time in terms of finishing. As far as the mats and towels go, I can even bring them with me and hem while on the road if I have to....
