Never Give Up, Never Surrender

I’m trying another warp, and making some changes. We’ll see how this goes. First of all, this time I’m putting the warp on Moya, my inkle loom. I’m also using embroidery floss for the warp. Moya and I are used to using embroidery floss, but I’ve always used it for inkle bands. I’ve never used […]


The last two days have been spent looking for information on 6-hole, hexagonal tablet weaving cards. I bought a set from Ampstrike about six years ago that I never used. The most common tablets are the 4-hole, square cards, and I’ve got those too. The square tablets, if labeled, generally are done ABCD clockwise around […]

Cooking with Wire

As you can see, I’m trying to come up with more interesting post titles, while also making sure I’m not using titles I’ve used before. It’s harder than you might expect. The blog is over a year old now, and the more posts you have on similar subjects, the more likely it becomes that you […]

The Fabric of My Addiction

“Fabric” is the key word here. I’m finding that wire crochet is fully as immersive for me as any other type of fabric creation. I’ve been at it since about 9 pm, and it’s almost midnight now. I’ve been having trouble putting it down. The only reason I did is because the wire is a […]

Hooks and Loops of Steel

But yeah, still with the wire crochet, and kicking myself for choosing what I think is the most ambitious of Yoola‘s beginner designs. It’s not that it’s difficult–once you learn how to do the stitches, it’s actually fairly easy, so long as you […]

So the Year Begins

It’s been a busy few days around here! Starting, of course, with the PIP passing his germs along to me, for which I owe him big time! I managed to avoid catching anything from the kids, only to get it from him. So now he’s over this plague, and it’s my turn to constantly hack up a […]

Dragon Update

We’ve made progress!!!! A lady in one of  my (eight billion) glider groups advised me to give the Dragons a few minutes of attention/treats every hour that I’m awake, taking the pouch out of the cage and talking softly to them while offering treats. I can’t say I’ve done it every hour, but I’ve done […]
