    598D810E-2FAD-422C-9ADD-C016804451B0This is such a great episode! A spring snow in Calgary is a great excuse to stay in, weave and ignore the yard! I kind of got carried away with a 24”by 8 yard warp and ended up with a pile of rugs!!

    Thanks Ellen.  It was a fun weave.  I used up some stash yarn, needed placemats, so it was a win win.

    Finally got to watch this episode this morning.  As I am short of time to watch, I thought I would finish threading my loom with a project that needs to be finished by the end of the week.  No problem, multi-tasking is good.   NOT!!! I learned an important lesson, you can’t thread 7878654321234565432123456 while watching Jane count 12 23 34 14.  I have had a great morning laughing at myself.  Good Saturday in the sun to one and all.

    I just finished my weft faced project.  It was so fun and I  just played.  Played with graphics and texture. I just played. So fun. I ended up with 6 placemats 12 x 18 +-  I don’t recall a discussion on wet finishing.  I’ll go back and look at the PDFs again.  Hope it helps my selvages. 9AF9ECAF-E23B-4160-B5C0-BD1290EBBEB3

    I would love to try this in cotton/linen for placemats.  Any suggestions on the size warp and weft yarn to use?

    Help! I cannot print page two of the pdf’s. It doesn’t fit on one page. It just happens to be a very important page! How did you do it?

    Just ignore this! DH advised to use the “fit to page”- option on the printer. Sorry!!!!!
