A Weaver's Little Helper

When I weave, my cat Twist frequently gets bored and tries to turn my attention back to where it should be: him. He strums my warp like a guitar, flosses with fine silks and hunts any trailing weft threads as I work. I find that a squirt bottle of water is an essential weaving tool.

That's Nancy Spies Ecclesiastical Pomp& Aristocratic Circumstance he's asleep on there.
