February often feels to me like a more positive ‘looking forward’ sort of month. Celebrating Imbolc resonates more for me than the material overload of Christmas. With seeds moving and turning in the ground, early spring flowers appearing and getting to 4.30pm in the light! My weaving too has been moving below the radar for a while as I look, think, play with colour and ideas. This week I bought new wool colours to explore. I’m making a scarf for me. So….. using my warping board (not the mill) I have wound 3 warps, 612 threads on the back beam now and I’m threading and sleying today.
