Going boldly into the unknown

So I’m doing it. I’m winding yarn off for the 20/2 sampler. I’m not sure I can, in good conscience, call this stuff yarn. It seriously is like sewing thread. I could probably buy serger cones of thread and it would be the same thing. Actually, I think I remember reading somewhere of someone (Maybe Sharon Alderman?) USING serger thread to weave with. So I’m a bit intimidated. Also, probably if the tension is uneven in the SLIGHTEST it’s going to show up.

The first time I wove with 10/2 cotton, it was the same thing. The tensioning part wasn’t so bad, but I had to learn how to beat in all over again. You can’t just beat the crap out of it. It makes the fell line (where your last weft shot was) all wiggly. It’s more like placing the weft shot.

Well anyway, I should really be altering cloth or paper right now. I just don’t have any idea what to do with this assignment. I’ll probably try to get a few pretty cool looking pieces instead of a ton of them. I just really don’t want to do it at all. It’s frustrating. It’s supposed to be helping my creative process but I just feel like it doesn’t relate to weaving at all. Ugghh!! Well I’m going to try to be productive.
