Don't you just love waiting for things like this???? I refuse to get wound up about it. It'll shine when it shines.
2. Not having to tie on to the AVL.
The AVL has this "sticky beam" which I had never seen before. I'd heard of it, but couldn't really
wrap my brain around it.
Well, it works. It really does. It is similar to sandpaper, kind of. So when I got the 8/2 cotton threaded through the reed, I just pulled the threads over the sticky beam, pressed them down to make sure all the threads were touching it, and cranked it tight. Then I just started weaving.
O.M.G. You bet!!!!
What a treat to not have to tie on.
The other thing about the AVL is that there is no brake release. The tension is terrific, and you just advance when you need to. The tension stays the same. It's really unbelievable.
Now I have to admit, that this towel made me wonder if I still have all my marbles. Red and orange?
Not sure about it, not sure at all. It was so intense, it was over the top. It tired me out.
I only did ONE of them, and started weaving with bright white. Ah, sweet relief.
This felt like a cool breeze.
The BEST news is my hot tub got fixed today, and my neck is sccccrrreaming for it.
I will sleep well tonight.
