Aaahhh isnt it sweet. Well done! weavesmiley

For low turn look on the instructions page and the video, then see yourself doing it in your head (I do it but my name is loopy for a reason!). I was told to do this by my T'ai Chi master. I recon it helps.
Well done though, practice is everything really.

well done. smile smile Wow i remeber learning the weave. Its a good feeling. First thing i learnt after that was how to turn 360 and back into the weave again i think. weavesmiley weavesmiley weavesmiley

Hold my breath when you are near
so i don't have to breath you in
look away before i start to endorse
your eyes full of hate and remorse
in to the eye of another
be the silence that screams

I remember that feeling as well. Everyone else who had started poiing at the same time as me could weave but me being the unco person I was couldn't figure it out.

When I did get it FINALLY it was such a great feeling.....and yes everyone looked at me too like I was some sort of strange weirdo when I yelled in pure joy at my success.

You are great!!! Congrats on the move.

Yeah congratulations smile

Imagining seeing yourself doing something is supposed to help, if you can see yourself doing it you can believe you can do it etc etc all adds up to making you try harder and getting it.

You're great

Congratulations. I'm still trying to get the weave right.

my friends looked at me like a basket making freak

Imagine trying to explain to them that you're trying to learn to weave when you're studying to do a job that (amongst rather narrow minded individuals who aren't willing to listen to all the other things we do) has a reputation as being all about basket weaving.

Me: "I'm learning to weave"

Them: "Errr... Yeah, that's because you're on a basket weaving course"

Me: rolleyes

One day i'll learn to resist gravity...

Congrats on having my favorite thread title ever.

I think I wanna make a TShirt that says;

"Tell me I'm great."


It still makes me smile.

You are, indeed, great.

Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

NYC - Genius. Sign me up for one too, I **NEED** one to go dancing in, (I suck)

I like tight but long... a difficult combination No baggy T shirts here.
Also not to thick for summer, and because the chemical cleaning process for regular cotton is so incredibly environmentally evil, its got to be organic cotton too. smile

Now that would be great.

Well done! Greatness is yours! In a few weeks, all the people who looked at you funny will be tangling, hitting themselves in the nuts, and begging you to teach them! biggrin

I know a few spinners in Chelters. Go to lots of parties and you cant fail to find them.

Rock on.
