The first of two hand-woven triangles for a poncho (see p.30) for someone is now completed. So I'll take it off the loom shortly and start all over again

Holy Yarn, Batman!

Josh that's remarkable! I would LOVE to order one pending it doesn't drain my bank account!

Er... well ... I make things as gifts for people, I don't sell them. I do creative work for its own sake. I know it's an old-hat way of thinking to the detriment of creative artists -- and I'm not pooh-poohing selling my creative work -- and one day I might -- but I'm in a phase where I see weaving as 'medicine clothing' or an alternative type of 'power-dressing'.
For me, hand-weaving is an archetypal act of empowerment for both weaver and the one who receives the gift. A very wet winter is giving plenty of reason to have to stay with an indoor project --  and put outside work like the dome-greenhouse on the back-burner (mind you, I have completed 96 out of 112 triangular windows. They're stacked up in the guest-bedroom)

We've done pentagons but not a pentagram. I made a special set of yarnshifting 'corners' and reeds for 5-sided shapes -- but burnt the equipment a few years back because we are overloaded with stuff. Well, I can always make them again I suppose

Well that's kind of you but I'll at least send you a painting or something in return.  

I'm thinking more of a wall hanging with a symbol. . .if you can weave in a symbol?

I wasn't offering anything to anyone. I was merely sharing part of my creative process.

I didn't think you were; I was asking ( and at the same time, refusing to accept it for free; but, rather, exchange for something I had made ).

I thought a hand-woven wall hanging would be stellar. Not that I can't purchase one. But, having one made by someone you know adds that special touch.
