So far the first towel has been fun, but sheesh am I ever making a lot of boo-boos. I'm not exactly shocked however. It seems like it always takes me a while to get in the zone: to stop making treadling errors, keep (fairly) even tension at the selvages, and maintain an even beating of the weft threads.
Why, I was asking myself, do I not stop weaving this first towel as soon as I notice all these mistakes? I could just start over. But I guess I know myself well enough to know that I need the practice. The zen-like moments will come; the weaving will start to flow like breathing if I'm patient.
