Maureen, the Bamboo 7 gauge is closer to 8/2 cotton while the Bamboo 12 gauge is closer to the 20/2 silk, if that helps you figure out which bamboo you have in your stash.January 20, 2019 at 11:13 am #63522
MQX – I love your colors and looking forward to the finished piecesJanuary 20, 2019 at 11:06 am #63521
I’ve done a small sample of Denting with 5/2 cotton, in a 12 dent reed set at 16 epi, with a 1/2 inch grid. This put 8 ends per grid, dented at 1.1.2. My project is 11.75 inches on the loom. This is a 15” four harness Dorothy usining all four harnesses. As you can see in the photo my warp just spread out in the wash. I have re-read and re-watched everything.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.January 20, 2019 at 11:05 am #63520
I have some JST Bambu in “cloud” that I’m thinking of trying if it’s not too slippery. I’m not sure if it’s Bambu 7 or 12. I ordered the 12, but the label inside the cone says ”Bambu 7GG”. Maybe alternate pics in cotton and Bambu would be more stable?January 20, 2019 at 10:47 am #63513

At the end of my warp I had 2 samples to keep for future reference. Then I wove 3 scarves. One with the cotton warp, another with the 30/2 silk (my favorite). the last scarf was made with leftover black 2/18 wool and a mystery fuchsia yarn I found in my stash. Once wet finished spread out through the whole warp. It’ very shear looking and I’m pleased with all three. Now back to working on season 2 PlaidJanuary 19, 2019 at 1:55 pm #63452
Betty, yours turned out very pretty.January 19, 2019 at 1:52 pm #63451
Thank you Ginette. It has been so much fun and enlightening as to what you can do with a weave structure. Ideas are circling! BettyJanuary 19, 2019 at 11:53 am #63441
Beautiful Betty! You’re on a roll 🙂January 19, 2019 at 8:48 am #63429
So many optionsJanuary 18, 2019 at 6:30 am #63303
Gabi, thanks for the suggestion. I never thought of using that. I’ll look for some at Lowes and give it a try.January 18, 2019 at 1:34 am #63287
Carol at the building market they sell little plastic pipes which they use for insulating electric wires I think. They crimp when heated. I hope you know what I mean. I used them to increase the diameter of my bobbin winder when I still had plastic bobbins. (I prefer the cardboard ones). Maybe this will work for yours as well. They are easy to remove if necessary.January 16, 2019 at 12:00 pm #63120
I too was worried about slippage. The drill attachment for bobbins is way, way too small a diameter to work on spools. I have spools (from The Woolery). I do place my cones horizontally when I wind my warp and when I wind bobbins. I too thought a tight wind would be necessary to hopefully minimize the silk from slipping. I don’t own anything else as slippery as silk to use for a test. I may just have to try it with part of a skein and see what happens. That or wait until I can afford a good bobbin winder like Jane uses. Thanks for your input!
