Weave-Along with us, there’s still time!
Weave Along with us! There is still time!
What really happened was I'd spend the week before the due date at the library, ignoring all the farther-away deadlines.
So what's happened with the Weave-Along and all the blogging I've been planning to do about it is that I haven't started yet.
Sometimes I tell myself that work is taking place somewhere in my subconscious that has to get done before I can start. I loved my yarn choices for the Weave-Along, but I couldn't decide on a weave structure. So here I am, almost two months later, and now I know! I am going to use the double two-tie threading system for a two-block supplementary warp. I'm doing that because on that threading I can weave any two-tie unit weave plus doubleweave and beiderwand. (This way I will prolong the final structure choice until late July, when I'll probably start weaving, since an earlier deadline, the September/October issue of Handwoven rules my life now.)

|Luckily, most of you aren't like me. Visit the Weave-Along gallery to see these and other pieces—and check out the Weave-Along forum to read Amanda Cutler's tutorial for blocks in summer and winter. If you are like me, there is still time! You can choose a weave structure from one of the study groups (summer and winter, huck or Atwater-Bronson lace, shadow weave, turned twill, etc.) and use the Mentor to answer your questions (we're planning on starting new study-group sessions this fall, stay tuned!).
We'll feature some of the Weave-Along pieces as projects in the November/December issue of Handwoven.
