That was a long day... so long in fact that I just came home from the studio still wearing my apron 😂 But it was worth it! I turned about 12,5km of yarn into a fresh warp and got it ready to start beaming in the morning. . . . #warp #varp #war#warpchain> #warpchain #varpfläta #varpflätor #weaving #handweaving #handweaver #vä#vävning #väv #weven #weben #weavingprep #weavingprocess #weavingloom #floorloom #countermarchloom #vävstol #weefgetouw #webstuhl #öx#öxabäckloom #öxabäck #inmystudio #iminateljé #hannieshantverk

Give yourself time. October is "Slow Fashion" time and I've been thinking a lot about the idea of "slow cloth" as the days get shorter and colder. Slow fashion is meant to be the antithesis of "fast fashion" and encourages you to consider quality, durability, and longevity in the pieces you add to your wardrobe. But maybe slow fashion also incorporates the idea of these garments taking a long time to produce as well... consider something like shearing the sheep, to processing and dyeing the fibre, to spinning the yarn, to weaving the fabric, to sewing the garment... beautiful and precious things take time. For me, this is often a hard thing to do. When you feel compelled to rush from one project to the next. To be productive. But rushing through the process robs it of its joy. Like this poor, doomed pair of warp chains. I wound them in a lovely gradient and they were meant for a baby wrap or something. But in my haste, I held too many strands of yarn together while warping, in an effort to "save time". In the end, my shortcuts caused a million tangles. It took me hours to wind on 12 inches. In a fit of frustration, I cut the whole thing off and it ended up in a pile of scrap yarn. Going through my old photos as I prepare for the Yarnography course, I stumbled upon this photo of these beautiful warp chains. And I was reminded about how important it is to breathe and give yourself time. No rush. No shortcuts. These beautiful things take time. #slowfashionoctober #slowcloth #warpchains #weaving

Current situation. Beer, yarn, looms, and a very messy studio. I got me 24hrs to beam, thread and sley 763 ends, 4 yards in length (4.2m) before guests arrive for some birthday celebrations. I also have to clean the house and parent, but hey, beer... #handweaving #weaving #4shaft #countermarche #floorloom #tableloom #weavingstudio #messy #warp #warpchains #beer #craftbeer #craftnotcrap #craftbrewery #bushshackbrewery #SMaSHale #singlemaltsinglehop

45 kilometers of yarn. Neatly divided into 4 warp chains of 628 threads each. Who knew you could get muscle ache from preparing a warp! Feeling all the working up and down the warping mill in the spot just above my knees. . . . #warp #varp #war#warpchain> #warpchain #varpfläta #varpflätor #varpa #warppreparation #repweave #ripsväv #thatsalotofyarn #wea#weavingprocess #weavingprep #weaving #handweaving #väv #vävning #weven #weben #redandwhite #rödochvit #roodenwit #handmadeinsweden #candycanecolors #polkagris #sufferingformyart #hannieshantverk
