It's all in one inch width although I think there may be a wider width you can buy also.
Now, why would I want to weave with this? I have always adored the mats and bags made from recycled plastic bags, but (and this is a good thing) we just don't get plastic much anymore in Ashland. The supermarket I shop at simply doesn't have plastic at all. In fact it's rare when I even get paper since I use the nice little reusable bags most places sell.
The few places that do use plastic all have a paper option and I can't remember the last time I opted for plastic. The small shops, as far as I can tell, pack everything in lovely handled paper bags of one sort or another. So the likelihood of me ever amassing enough plastic bags to cut and weave is slim to none, but this tape I can get and in some pretty jazzy fun colors too!
As you can plainly see, there is another prayer flag run on the Murphy loom. I did this warp a wee bit differently and there still may be changes the next warp.
Now, for some exciting news. My Dad wanted a Harrisville Rug loom, the Collingwood shaft switching one. New these things cost a small fortune. With a little help from Dawn we found him a used one in Syracuse New York at a very nice price. He picked it up yesterday and is putting it back together today I would imagine.
The second piece of exciting news is that Gene is finally making the trek to pick up my new-to-me Louet Delta in Idaho Falls. I'm hoping to have her in house by the weekend. Warp planning is in process. :-)
On critter news, Miss Bea has blown out her knee and will need surgery to repair it. We'll be looking into doing it in the next month or so since it is both costly and unplanned. She is on light pain medication and actually doing well. Perky and vocal as always. Peter ripped a dew claw. We had 40 wild turkeys strut through the property Monday evening, 2 toms at least, a bevy of hens and tons of hatchlings. Baby turkeys aren't so pretty, but they were fun to watch.
We also seem to be getting a second spring. After a hot last week, our temps overnight this week have averaged around 40, this morning it's 35 degrees and daytime might see us warming up to 70 or so. Perfect weather as far as I'm concerned
