Jean, love your poncho, thanks for posting it, swapping the red for blue had been on my mind..now I know it works..and I love the wool with cotton idea!February 15, 2018 at 7:00 am #40352
I was curious as to what kind, weight of wool you used?February 15, 2018 at 4:58 am #40346
Thanks everyone! Pretty sure I’m going to make it a poncho. It’s so light and airy.February 14, 2018 at 9:02 pm #40340
Beautiful throw Jean! Lots of drape 🙂February 14, 2018 at 6:55 pm #40339
Jean I love your throw. Beautiful.February 14, 2018 at 5:19 pm #40338
What a wonderful result from “playing”, Jean. It looks beautiful and cozy! Thanks for sharing.February 14, 2018 at 4:53 pm #40335
I’m SO EXCITED!!! The wool worked BEAUTIFULLY with the cotton warp! I now have a small throw. I just wet finished it on delicate in the washer and then put it in the dryer for about ten minutes (checked it every few) and it’s beautiful. I tried to take the best pics so you could see the drape on this thing. I’m seriously considering turning it into a poncho. I love, love, love it!!! The mixture of cotton and wool will make it perfect for here in Central Texas. Thank you, Jane, for opening up this new concept to me. And, for the record, I’m sold on the 18epi for 8/2 cotton now!February 14, 2018 at 9:05 am #40279
it looks great! Love your blue zinger! As for making the picture smaller, you’ll have to try and play with your camera settings or your software. I kind of like the close up shot 😉February 14, 2018 at 8:51 am #40278
Re-sleyed yesterday afternoon. After a comedy of errors, I finally got to start weaving. I was going to use a blue rayon boucle, but I wasn’t diggin’ it, so I changed to some charcoal grey wool from my stash. I can’t wait to see what this fabric does when I get it off the loom and wash it! (Is there a way to make the pictures not so huge?)February 14, 2018 at 8:05 am #40276
It is fun, right? Like we have permission to just play.February 13, 2018 at 2:00 pm #40254
Great! Wonderful! So many ideas. I’m glad I’m putting on the 8yards. I’ve never thought about division of space, nor the use of Fibonacci in the way you’re showing us. Thanks!February 12, 2018 at 8:27 am #40188
So I finished the squared sample and sixth towel on an 8 yard warp last night. They’re in the washer now. Enough left for a scarf or table runner. About to re-sley at 12epi and realized I’m going to have to move my shaft cords. Math… not my strong suit. Lol. I think I’ll go shop the stash for weft first. That’s more fun.February 11, 2018 at 5:14 pm #40177
Oh my gosh, this is so much fun I can’t quit smiling! For 25 years I’ve been weaving saddle blankets on a monster Cranbrook 12 harness, 60 inch loom. I use hand spun wool, threaded at 6 epi and beat HARD at 18-20 ppi. Imagine the challenges I’ve had going to a smaller loom using 8/2 cotton 18 epi, 18 ppi! I really had to practice a soft beat and I was making terrible selvedges because I am used to making a large bubble, or angle, at my fell line. Today it all came together and I am loving this. THANK YOU, JANE! I’ll post pictures when I get further along.February 11, 2018 at 9:38 am #40137
So excited – have to get this off the loom so I can get started!!!February 11, 2018 at 8:09 am #40133
I used this big Leclerc floor mill for the first time (borrowed from my sister) after watching a few times Jane’s Online Guild Episode 1.5 Warping on a Floor Mill.
Everything work out well and I am happy with the result.
It was easier than I thought.
