This is my dishtowel project. My selvadges discourage me, so I got the idea of looking to YouTube for some weaving demonstrations. I remember Laura Frey saying that you get your selvadges when you get your rhythm. I watched those videos yesterday morning before work, and then tried to apply some of what I saw.
This morning was yet another late work-day schedule, so while eating my breakfast, I browsed through an old weaving magazine. The article I flipped open was by Madeline and addressed none other than selvedges. I about fainted. I don't know that I was eating - article or granola.
I washed up my breakfast dishes and went upstairs to see if what she said worked, and you know what? It pretty much did. I wove for a half hour before the race to work routine kicked in. I am so much closer to an acceptible selvedge. My shoulders ached for quite a while today, but my heart was happy.
