I wasn't completely distracted by the yarn, because I did start a new adventure this weekend. I have a simple piano and on Christmas my husband had bought me the tools to tune it. I was a bit overwhelmed, but with tuning the harp, I began to really think I could do this. So I opened the top and started with middle C. In principle, it's rather simple - take rubber wedges and damp two of the three strings. Tune the remaining string with a chromatic tuner. Remove a wedge and tune by ear the second string to the first. Repeat with the third string. Repeat, repeat, repeat until the first octave is tuned and then tune additional octaves by ear to the first. I tuned another octave to the first, but found that tuning steel strings does take a little more strength than the nylon strings on my harp. So we'll do this in stages. Not to mention I think my ear was beginning to get tired to listening to the subtle differences!
The wedge weave is still growing, but I only completed two wedges this weekend. Even with Friday off, there was still much to be done including spending Sunday with family. One thing that I'm particularly proud of with this weave is that I'm getting the tension consistent in the weaving to keep each wedge flat on top. That took me nearly all week in class and I'm glad to see that it stuck with me!
