Bury the Hatchet woven runner

it's been a month or two but i'm finally getting back into the swing of weaving.  swing, tempo, groove, it really is about finding a  rhythm.  when i'm in it, things come easy and it doesn't matter if i just find 15 minutes a day to weave, those 15 minutes are incredibly productive.  when i'm out of the rhythm i can weave for 2 hours and get just a jumble of mistakes.  that's when it's not fun.  luckily, i and my loom are one, for now.  i finished a runner this week that i tied onto the last runner i did.  that means that it's the same pattern but different colors.  it was another color experimentation of mine.  i've learned something about myself.  i've learned that i'm not "into"  a lot of colors in one project.  i like simple color schemes.  so for the next project, which will be another tie on, i'm toning down the colors.  I'm tying all my knots tonight so i should have it done by friday evening.  look for it on the horizon.....

 oh, and i always name my pieces for whatever songs are going through my head at the time.  this one is named for the "Low"  song entitled "Hatchet".

"so you be my mary ann
 and i'll be your yoko
 and let's bury the hatchet like
 the Beatles
 the Beatles and the Stones". - Low
