Its been a while. My SIL ( my font of knowledege of all things internet) emailed me recently asking if he should delete the blog. Coincidentally I was thinking about restarting it. The question then becomes why should I. Are blogs outdated? Is there a serious reason to take the effort and time to post? Hmm, I think I asked this when I first started. As I looked back at what I had written in 2014 and 15 I was amazed at what I had forgotten that I had done, some of it not bad. Also coincidentally, I had a short email conversation with Alice Schlein who just published a new monograph on Lampas— Lampas for Shaft Looms ( I highly recommend). She said she would like to read my blog! So, Alice, thank you for the encouragement. And I know I will like having a better (read that any) record of what I have been doing in the weaving realm.
