You’ll be weaving 28 picks and aim for about 2 1/8″ in total.

Hi! can anyone pls explain the second table & last column of Season-3-Episode-2-Redenting-sample-1-1.pdf
I can understand the first one: weave 2 inches with 24 ppi, then supersquish for 1/2 inch etc
The second table I cannot understand “28 2 1/8ish”

Thank you for the idea about checking the hardware store for steel rods – for some reason it didn’t occur to me that these would be in hardware stores! I’ll have to check my local store.February 19, 2019 at 4:24 pm #66414
Hi Nina, I noticed the steel rods at the local hardware store. I am in Canada and I was at a Home Hardware. They had them in different lengths/thicknesses. Not sure if this will solve the problem but a steel rod would be heavier than a similarly wooden dowel. I am not quite at that point yet in my weaving. Hope that helps.February 19, 2019 at 2:57 pm #66407
Am weaving along doing the cramming and denting linen project and loving the linen. The only problem I am having is that the open sections of the warp have become loose (as Jane said they would) so I weighted the open warps with a rod and fishing weights (as per her instructions in the video). However it is not helping. The warp is still quite loose in the open parts even though I added more weights. It is becoming seriously distorted. I am wondering if this is because I had to use a wooden dowel instead of a steel rod as I do not have an extra steel rod for my loom. Do you think this is why the loose warps are not behaving? Where does one get an extra steel rod anyway?February 19, 2019 at 7:49 am #66368
I absolutely loved working with the linen! The sheen and the texture just made me so happy as I was weaving. I used linen weft for two of the scarves and one shorter sample piece and silk weft in old man’s beard for the other scarf.February 17, 2019 at 9:38 pm #66281
I have a question about finishing the linen projects. I haven’t started weaving it yet (work commitments) but I was wondering if finishing the linen was any different from finishing cotton?February 15, 2019 at 1:49 pm #66086
A bit behind – just did a warp for Episode 1 Season 3 and wove that with 2/16. Then thought I would resley and try the crammed and dented and thought I would try the second re sley – If you follow denting as written it turns out to be 5 1/3 inches. If you change the 2 to a dent to 1 to a dent to get to ep1 12 – you have 9″ in the reed. Is that correct?February 15, 2019 at 10:37 am #66061
Your blue scarf is beautiful Jacqueline.February 15, 2019 at 12:32 am #65989
Really enjoyed this episode. I used 2/16 cotton for both warp and weft in two shades of blue from my stash. I will look out for linen that Jane uses, but I couldn’t easily source it in the UK. Since taking this photograph, I have twisted the fringe which gives it a much nicer finish. Woven on my Louet David 2 and I didn’t have any tension issues as I only warped enough for a sample and the scarf.February 14, 2019 at 9:23 pm #65985
Done! and happy with results, a small amount of collapse present. Used 2/20 and 2/16 cotton and epi 40 and 15.February 13, 2019 at 6:30 pm #65821
Oh wow Kathleen, can’t wait to see if finished and see how the boucle acts. Lovely colours!February 13, 2019 at 5:21 pm #65815
After shoveling snow I came in to start my weaving, after 1 hour I got up and well lets just say I couldn’t straighten myself upright.
I am trying to use fibres that I have in my stash, so I used 2/20 cotton from Lunatic Fringe. I also had some boucle that I placed on each side of the cram cotton. I suspect it will shrink more and hopefully give me a scalloped edge in the weft.February 12, 2019 at 9:23 pm #65738
Great, Nina. Glad it worked out and looking forward to seeing the result!February 12, 2019 at 8:20 pm #65732
Thank you. I thought I should spread the warp out in the raddle normally – just wasn’t sure how many ends to put in each 1/2 ” space in my raddle. So I divided the ends (280) by 13 (the stated width of the warp) and came up with 21.5 ends per inch which gave me a little over 10 ends per 1/2″ in my raddle so I put 10 ends in each 1/2 inch space. Seems to have worked out ok! (I am using a regular raddle on an Oxaback Lilla loom).
