Loosen up

In a seminar last year, one of our suggested activities was to purposely make a mistake. I made a lot of weaves that year. Many of them are misshapen because I like to use one continuous line of material. This month I tried a looser method; I cut multiple strips of material and weaved them without any anchoring knots.

I liked the finished result:

loose weave

loose weave

But then whenever I looked at it again I saw parts unravelling. And I couldn’t stop myself from knotting them all down. I did, however, attempt to do gentler knots.

And I feel that’s summed up this month for me. I’m slightly more relaxed that I usually am.
