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.February 11, 2018 at 7:58 am #40132
Thank you SandraFebruary 10, 2018 at 6:29 pm #40125
Is that the big Leclerc warping mill? That is what i have and I love it!February 10, 2018 at 6:28 pm #40124
Your eyes will just sweep by the double sleyed reed in the one spot. You don’t really see it. Really. Having lots of fun, few issues warping as I’ve only warped the Standard once or twice? Always a good idea to make sure the warp is centered EVERYWHERE. Have a few tension issues due to this, but once I finish this towel I am cutting off and resleying at 12 epi as I found a bunch of knubbly wool/silk blends that look like fun 🙂February 10, 2018 at 6:25 pm #40123February 10, 2018 at 3:32 pm #40120
In these last few days since receiving this month’s video I have watched each episode at least two times and some three. Today I ran to my warping mill after seeing a towel I REALLY liked and started winding up a storm. It is hard to contain myself with all the possibilities of designs shown. Wowee!February 10, 2018 at 2:56 pm #40119
I was watching Episode 2.2 and around about 35 minutes my brain exploded and I had to take a break to find the pieces.
Wowser!February 10, 2018 at 12:32 pm #40109
Thank-you! I’ve only been weaving a few years, and this episode was exactly what I need to take the next step. I have a journal I’ve been saving for “something” special, and I can’t wait to start using it for my designs. Looking forward to this season and trying the samples.February 10, 2018 at 6:54 am #40087
Fun, right?!February 10, 2018 at 12:00 am #40082
Looking great Ghislaine! It’s amazing how light can change the colour in a photo 😏February 9, 2018 at 8:46 pm #40077
I could not wait to start the Asymmetry sample and used my stash on my 24″ rigid heddle loom (last photo) with a 3 yards warp. I decided not to do a sample but go ahead with dishtowell.
I also set up an 8 yards warp on my Leclerc Inca 4 shaft loom as soon as I received the kit. I wove one 32 inches towell with 1/3 black, 1/3 dark grey and 1/3 light grey, really enjoy this experience.February 9, 2018 at 8:23 am #39999
Your first sample off the loom and looking good, Jacqueline! You do have me wondering if you are using the mallet to tame the centimetres 😉
