        I like to see finished projects and there for I started with my realy first one on a great floor loom

        While viewing the first and second episode I finished my first project on my new spring loom. A stola 72 cm wide and 208cm long with handspun wool in a 40/10 reed, every dent a thread and some thicker ones which I distributed after Fibronacci. More Pictures you will find at my blog

          That’s beautiful, Gabriele!  You must be very happy with your first project on a floor loom.  Did you use handspun for your weft or something else?

          Thank you for starting this thread – hopefully others will post photos of what they are weaving or have woven since they joined our JST Online Guild.

              Sandra, it is handspun yarn in warp and weft, two ply and nothing broke ((-:

              Beautiful weaving Gabriele.

              What I’ve woven from what I’ve learned in this guild:

              Please be kind.  I’m still very much a novice weaver.  Sure, I’ve been weaving off and on for over a decade, but only seriously started weaving 6 months ago.  I have so much to learn but thankfully there are some amazing mentors in town to learn from.

              These towels and dishcloths (dishcloths are samples) are the first things I warped using the techniques I learned in episode one.  They are woven in 8/2 cotton using the peaceful rhythm pattern.

              IMG_1817

              I used 16/2 for the hem, but when it came time to fold it under, there was a bit showing.  I thought it looked okay, so I left it as a ‘design detail’.

              IMG_1818

              This is one of the samples of what I’m working on now.  I wanted to learn something called waffle weave as my imagination says this will be nice for the bathroom towels.  As I’m weaving on a jack loom (and am still pretty crap at tossing the shuttle – I’ve renamed my shuttle a ‘drop shuttle’ as it falls more time than my spindle – please, oh please, I hope episode three will help with this), anyway, as I suck, I was nervous about waffle weave that had 3 up 1 down, so I choose this pattern which is always 1 up 3 down.  I got four colours of blue and drew with pencil crayons all sorts of patterns, in the end, I kept waffling about what pattern to use, my loom was empty, so I just did a random warp with all 4 colours, then each cloth had a different solid colour weft.

              IMG_1892

              I liked how it turned out so I wound a warp for four towels.  It was amazing!  Using the episode one method, I was able to get the whole warp on the warping mill instead of having to break it into two or three sections.  It was so fast when I stopped for my first count I was only a couple of warps shy of being finished.  That was too much fun, so I right away wound a second one using leftover cones of yarn, randomly changing to a new colour as a cone ran out.

              IMG_1907

              The pictures aren’t doing the colours justice.  It’s way richer looking in person.  Oh well.

              The blue one I put on the loom using what I learned in episode two.  So easy!

              This guild has been a great help to my weaving.  Thanks so much Jane and everyone who made it happen.

                  Wow! All your work is just lovely. You have nothing to apologize for.

                  I haven’t started on any project associated with these lessons and won’t until I have my new-to-me countermarche loom up and running. But I’ve been weaving napkins on my Saori and my biggest problem is my total lack of sewing skills. I’ve left about 1″ for a hem on each end I assume I should cut and hem before washing, right? Wd love some tips on this

                        Just recently I purchased (another loom!) a Jane and here is the first runner off it. A nice overshot pattern from Handwoven mag. Apologies for wearing my pyjamas online!

                                  Wow! Beautiful piece. 🏅 I’m not sure the Saori loom was meant for such gorgeous non-organic, non-alternative weaving! Only jokes! If you can do this on a saori loom I’d like to see what you can do on a floor loom. Best wishes.

                                    Finding all of the episodes and guild forum posts helpful & inspiring! Next up, overshot mug rugs on new to me Kombo.

                                          Just finished winding a warp of 8/2 cotton boucle for a pair of bath towels I bought from Jane’s store, and am now threading my way across. I decided to try the highly textured yarn for the first time- the loops scared me for years. The videos were so helpful and encouraging. Warping and winding was no problem at all. Hoping to start weaving before the weekend is out! I

                                              Great job Ed.  Just watch which reed you use.  If you use a fine reed it will be hard on those loops so try to use the reed substitution chart and an open reed sleyed to the appropriate sleying ….like an 8 and you won’t have any problems. 🙂

                                              The 8/2 cotton boucle towels are weaving up beautifully. I followed Jane’s advice and used an 8 epi reed with two ends per slot to get 16 epi and allow the loopy threads lots of space. The only thing I have to watch for are the floating selvedge threads which sometimes catch and need a pluck or a thrum across the woven area to bounce into alignment. This is the widest project I have ever woven ( 29.5″ in reed) on this Ashford 8 table loom, and I had to take some heddles off of each harness to make room- my last project was Atwater Bronson Lace.  I picked eight colors just to get a feel for the range of choices in this yarn, and its been a lot of fun watching the way each color blends as I add stripes. Thanks again Jane for your help and encouragement.

Having fun mixing in boucle and playing with the overshot draft. Should be set for holiday gifts for 2017. I love my new Spring loom.

The first set came through wet finishing amazingly soft and I am quite happy with them. I avoided tencel for a while because it was not “natural,” but wanted some experience before investing in silk. I am a convert. This fiber is truly a changeling- when it came off the loom it was very hard. After washing it remained hard.  I was discouraged. But once dry it was very soft and drapey. The shrinkage of the warp was about 10%- more than I thought it would be.

                                                                            Details:

This will be a 60″ wide wool blanket woven in two strips that are married up the middle. I am hoping to one day feel competent enough to try a true double weave this wide on my Spring. I am using Harrisville Shetland for warp and weft set at 15 epi and 15 ppi and a straight 2 x 2 twill. I went a little tighter than the 13 epi Jane suggests. This was to fit in the number of pattern repeats I needed for the tartan design. I modified the “Sutherland” tartan slightly to achieve the full width of 508 ends, and replaced blue with gray. I found a great resource for tartan patterns here: https://www2.cs.arizona.edu/patterns/weaving/monographs/dhc_tar.pdf. Hopefully after fulling the seam will be barely discernible. I made a plain weave wool bedspread a few years ago on a rigid heddle loom and that project took five strips. The seams vanished after fulling. Other than a few broken warp threads during the beaming (which I did all by myself- THIS was a challenge), so far so good!

Approx. 78″ x 58″ woven on Spring 90. Two panels stitched together. Woven at 16 epi, but was not able to get 16 ppi, so tartan squares were rectangles… but still a nice blanket! Planning the next one at 12 epi as Jane recommends and hopefully a successful double weave twill to avoid the seam.

They give a nice discount if you buy in quantity. Watch out for backorders though.  I don’t know where they get it from, but I have had no issues with knots on the cones- which I have heard can be an issue sometimes. The cones are also not EXACTLY 0.5 lbs…. sometimes a little more- yes I check!

                                                                                                    Their customer service emails are amazing- somebody answers almost immediately.

                                                                                                    I also buy from Halcyon.com. They are amazingly fast with delivery but a little more expensive.

                                                                                                    Hope this is useful!

You give me hope that I too can weave a blanket in two sections and seam them together. I would like to know how you seamed the pieces together. What seam stitch did you use? I liked to hear that it became almost invisible after being fulled.

I sewed the two halves together with the same wool as the warp using a tapestry needle. The stitch was just a simple whip stitch. Try and space them evenly and catch the warp selvedge threads only. Also, start sewing a few inches in at each end and then reverse and sew back over what you have already sewn to add strength at the ends. I also twisted the fringes at the joined edges at both ends first to stabilize it even more. Don’t pull the stitches too tight.

                                                                                                        I hope this helps.

Its quite magical watching two layers and a fold emerge as I weave… almost impossible to get my head around at first. I am weaving the Harrisville Shetland at 12 epi and 12 ppi, which feels really “right.” The beat is firm but not hard. I was worried at first as I threaded all. those. heddles…. they seemed so close together and the 12 dent reed with 2 per dent felt crowded, but no problems at all. Not a single broken thread and a clean shed as long as I keep the tension firm. It ended up 35 inches wide in the reed and 32.5 inches after 2.5 inches of draw in.

Double weave is magical. You cut it off the loom and unfold it and there it is! The fold vanished during wet treatment….. except for a slight miscount in warp threads. Harrisville shetland feels wonderful after washing.

I have always shied away from doubleweave but I need to break out of the box.  Maybe my next big project (after the tea towels!!). Very encouraging . Love the colour combinations!

It hasn’t been a fun task in the past but it’s way more enjoyable since doing Jane’s way.  The weft is 20/2 spun silk I picked up at Jane’s a few weeks ago.  Warp is 3/2 organic cotton and safari cotton.  The shawl hasn’t been washed yet but it’s feeling so soft already.20180315_103354-1

The warp is Tussar Tweed silk and the weft is 2/16 cotton. This is a long sample, long enough to end up with a scarf.  I’m loving the feel, the thinnest & softness of the fabric so far. Keeping with plain weave it’s​ really showing the design & the slubs in the warp which was my goal 🙂20180928_184434-1

I ordered the yarn from Yarn Barn and it looked a lot darker online. A color called “quarry.” I was worried but it turned out to be a slightly gray blue, which works with the browns.
