Here is a small collage of my samples. Learned so much 😊February 20, 2018 at 10:47 am #40642CarrieParticipant
Judy, I love the colours and patterns that you chose! I haven’t decided if I will change my zinger colour yet. I have some boucle being shipped. If I can be patient enough to wait for it, I will change the sett and then maybe try the zinger change at the end.February 20, 2018 at 10:26 am #40641GinetteKeymaster
Wow, beautiful Judy! Good for you for changing the zinger twice!February 20, 2018 at 10:00 am #40640judyParticipant
Here you have them– the results from my 5 yard warp. I tied on new zingers twice and used a white slub as a part of a weft in the 2/2 piece with the purple zinger. While I didn’t take the experiments any further, I thoroughly enjoyed the whole process and look forward to the upcoming set of gamp samples. Great course!February 20, 2018 at 6:49 am #40633
Melissa, It was me that mentioned the Fire TV – so much better, right?
It looks like your wave is starting to straighten out. I think you just needed a little more of a header before you started to weave the sample. That or your tension wasn’t even across the warp after tying on. Your last few rows of squares look perfect to me. You’ll get a feel for how hard/soft (I hate to use the word hard cause it isn’t in plain weave at 18epi) and just start doing it naturally. You’re doing great! Hang in there!February 20, 2018 at 6:42 am #40632
Thanks, Annette. It’s really turquoise and works perfectly with the grey. So would blue.February 20, 2018 at 6:40 am #40631
It’s old from my stash, but I’d say fingering to sport weight… I told someone else I’d do a wpi and I forgot. I’ll do it today.February 19, 2018 at 4:18 pm #40610SandraKeymaster
Melissa – it looks like you started weaving your sample as soon as you tied it on the cloth beam. If you look at the way Jane does it, you’ll see that she will weave a bit to establish a straight fell line and once established, she moves on to the cloth she wants to weave. It looks like you were having tension problems and by the time you got to grey, everything was falling into place! Also, don’t forget to give yourself a large arc of weft, as you are laying it in.February 19, 2018 at 4:11 pm #40609MelissaParticipant
I’m really struggling with making a square -I just want it to be a different number of weft threads! Also have some wavy thing going on so I’m working on my technique to see if that fixes it. I just watched the final piece of the last episode (Thank You to the person who mentioned you can watch them using Amazon firetv!) where Jane was fixing her issues-so helpful to see that!February 18, 2018 at 10:52 am #40563KathyParticipant
Kathleen your samples look great! I love how you’re using colors from your stash!February 18, 2018 at 9:53 am #40561
Thanks Sandra. The wool has a bit of tooth to it, but I don’t mind it. Reminds me it’s wool. lol. I think I will do this again one day with Zephyr.February 18, 2018 at 9:12 am #40558GinetteKeymaster
Love you colours!February 18, 2018 at 7:13 am #40557GabrieleParticipant
All your samples look so great, I have one project to finish ….and then ……(-:February 18, 2018 at 6:30 am #40556
Love it! I know… the counting is like a dance. lolFebruary 17, 2018 at 10:55 pm #40553kathleen readyParticipant
Used some coloured cones from my previous project, and made the warp a bit wider. I caught myself saying 1,2,3 boink. I liked contrast of the black boink line in the second sample towel.
