The Space in Between

I really like that moment when the weaving is finished and the scissors come out to release the textile from the warp.  My first weaving teacher called it a "birth", which is pretty apt.  It is also a moment when one can take a breath and admire the almost finished work - and perhaps see things that didn't go exactly right that hopefully the wet finishing will help smooth out.

It's also a good time to see how good my calculations were regarding the warp length.  Did I put on too much and waste the yarn - or put on not quite enough and have to squeeze out the last few weft shots or inches. 

It's also a good time to start thinking of the next project...
