Designing a Crackle Jacket: Introduction

After reading Sara Lamb's exhortations to weavers to start blogs, after listening to endless encouragement from Leigh to start one (that's her way of thanking me for encouraging her to start one....ahem......), I finally bit the bullet. I set up my very own blog. Setting it up turned out to be much easier than I expected, though I already have some questions.

But, where to start? I struggled. I wrote an introduction. I hated it.

Finally, I wondered, why not just start in the middle of things? In the middle of what I am doing right now? So that is what I will do.

Oh, and by the way, apart from weaving on a rigid heddle loom for a few years some 35 years ago, I have been an active and learning weaving for about 7 years now. I weave on an 8-shaft loom set up in the breakfast area at the end of the kitchen. The light there is much to wonderful to use that area for a mere breakfast room! So the breakfast room table has been put in the family room, where it serves, you guessed it, as a work table.

More next time when I will ease my way into a discussion of crackle.
