Obligatory visual - and yes, that's an all black warp on the AVL I'm just going to start threading....
Weave like a Pirate? What? Where did that come from????
I couldn't sleep the first night at John C. Campbell in January and while the thoughts roiled through my brain I thought about what weaving efficiently was, how some people were adamant that their method was the only method to use or you courted doom, etc.
Out of those swirling thoughts came the idea that when learning how the process of weaving works, you have to accommodate your loom, your dis/abilities, the cloth you are attempting to weave. The more various ways a weaver knows, the better able s/he is to select the appropriate approach. Since people remember things if they are broken down into short concise catchy phrases, I distilled all that into three words:
Or, for short - AAR
Or, in other words, Weave Like a Pirate.
Be a little out of the mainstream. Be a little daring. Be a little piratical! Go on, I double dare you. AARRRR!
