Ohh Balls!

Well, this is progress! Yep, after dying, I’ve wound the hanks back into balls. So, on the ” one evening and weekend at a time” scale, I’m actually getting somewhere. Not too ambitious, but still better than the hypothetical weaving I was doing for years.

The longest journey starts with the first step – in this case it’s winding and dying and then winding again.

I should also give a nod to the basic cotton warp I put on as a warm-up exercise. It was also supposed to motivate the kids to try weaving. They both did about an inch each and then returned to their respective phones and switches…mmmm…I did find a lego person on it the other day though, so, nice to see they’re still playing with old toys too, right?

I am a native of Ireland, but have been living and weaving between Barcelona and Ireland for over 21 years now; mostly in Barcelona. I studied woven textiles (and dyeing and felting) at Winchester School of Art, UK and have lived and worked in Ireland, UK, Japan and now Spain. Weaving takes up the space in my brain that is not filled with my daughter, son, husband and family - and "grown-up paid non-weaving work"...(the "mortgage paying" kind that takes up most of my time! As well as housework and sundry other things which I usually try to ignore as long as possible).
