Look, I can use a warping board!
This is cotton chenille 4 yd. warp. You can see that I ended up with 2 crosses, by mistake, but that was not any real problem. I moved the warp over to my loom which I warped back to front (thanks to the spouse for making me a raddle).
The warping, threading the heddles, and sleying the reed took FOREVER. Thankfully, I didn't have any threading problems. Once the warp was tied on to the cloth beam I was weaving!
This is my weaving study group project for March. The threading I used was a "rosepath" threading (1,2,3,4,3,2,1,4). I will try out a total of 10 different treadling patterns to investigate how different treadling patterns affect the same threading. I'm using an inch of plain weave to separate the different patterns.
Thoughts on the project: The yarn I'm using is extra from the weaving group, with no info, so I had to do wraps on the ruler to get my estimated epi of 15. I must have wrapped very tightly because the the fabric I'm creating would be great for upholstery. I really need to get a 12 dent reed so I have more sleying options. The draft I'm using must have been developed for a counterbalance loom because I'm pretty sure I'm looking at the backside of my weaving. Once you get the loom warped the weaving is fast and fun!
Swimming: I swam 1000yds this morning!! WooHoo! I did 200 free, 200 back, 200 free, 200 breast, 200 free!
