My moment of zen...

I love me a chained warp. There is something so beautiful about the way the fibers clump and go over and under each other, all neat and tidy. I think it might have something to do with the fact that it is the means to keep the warp together, keeping it from tangling. 
There aren't words to express the exasperation that can come from a tangled warp, the realization that it needs to be re-warped, of having to start all over again front the beginning, all that fiber being wasted. The chain saves that from happening. 

 This is the start of some rag placemats. Stay tuned to see how they turned out!
