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.

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 #40087JeanParticipant
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 #40077GhislaineParticipant
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 😉February 9, 2018 at 8:20 am #39998
Wonderful Jean! Thank you for posting your samples, so far! It will be fun to watch everyone’s adventures with Asymmetry and beyond.February 9, 2018 at 5:36 am #39989JeanParticipant
I’ve been posting to Facebook, Instagram and Ravelry, but completely forgot about this forum because I watch the episodes on my TV via my Fire TV.
I had the BEST day yesterday. I treated it as if I was away at a workshop. Still had to get meals made and let the dogs in/out, lol, but mostly everyone let me just weave. It takes me a little less than an hour to weave a 32″ towel. I seem to be stuck on 3rds because that’s all I’ve done so far. At first I started following the samples Jane showed, but then creativity set in and I just started to wing it. I got the 1st squares sample done and four towels. The weaving is “easy breazy” and so much fun. I haven’t taken anything off the loom yet and wet finished, but I think I am sold on the 18 epi. I had a couple of issues with the first towel. Both of the end selvedge threads broke. I had my tension too tight (which I often do) and after I loosened up, no troubles at all.
Here is some of yesterday’s progress.February 8, 2018 at 12:55 pm #39962Terry Lynn CarefootParticipant
This is amazing. Need the work day to be done so I can go home and play.

First sample, sett too close, 8 ends per cm. Now changed it to 7 cm which comes very close to 18 epi. But had to sley 2-2-3 through the reed, which is very visible, but anyhow, it’s a two, so fibonachi will be happy. Next one with 6 ends per cm = 15,24 epi. Just so happy trying and weaving again!
