If you don't know anything about weaving, you'd probably think by looking at this loom shot that I've barely started. But the actual weaving is just half of weaving. Before you can start weaving there's warping, which is putting the yarn on the loom. So by the time I got to this point I'd already spent hours measuring 407 threads to all be exactly 4 and a half yards long in just the right sequence of white and black. Then I got help from my lovely husband and daughters to wind the measured warp yarn on to the back beam of the loom. And then I started the process of threading the heddles.
And then I stalled.
My loom has been sitting on my dining room table in this exact state for a couple of weeks now. Instead of working on finishing the warping I've been knitting, and reading, and walking, and sleeping, and pretty much anything and everything else. If I just got through threading the heddles, I could move on to the actual weaving part, and I think I'd zip through to the end. But every time I look at it, and think I should work on it, I just turn my back and do something else.
Have you ever hit the crafting doldrums? How do you pull yourself out of them and motivate to continue?
