Not the last soy protein scarf warp!
It was with a great deal of satisfaction that I beamed the 'last' blue soy protein warp - I'd met my goal within the deadline I'd set for myself. I could think about the next thing to do - after dressing the small loom with a 2/16 cotton warp for my student and beaming the 2/16 cotton warp for tea towels and curtain fabric, that is.
Digging through my stash to see what else I could use up, however, I found more cones of soy protein! I wasn't done after all!
At least it wasn't as bad as first feared - the box held an assortment of yarns, not just soy protein. So the end is in sight - four more warps wound four ends at a time (9 meters long) and four warps wound 2 ends at a time (5 meters). That will give me an additional 24 scarves on top of the 48 from the first stage. By the time I finish weaving them all I will have decent inventory - of this design - for the 4 major shows I will be doing this fall (along with several smaller venues).
In the end I probably won't have the number of different designs I like to offer - less width and more depth. But with what I already have on hand, it should be sufficient. It looks like I won't get much more done until after September when I get back from Puyallup and Texas. We'll see how much I can do in the 4 weeks before the next sales event in October. Gratification will be delayed!
