            Thank you for an excellent episode. Was excited to see the framing thread changes and how easy it was to change colors in the middle of the warp. Helps to know that this can be done when sampling color combos. Don’t like what you see? Cut out the old and bring in another color and keep going until you love it! Can’t wait to put a new warp on the loom and give these graphics a go.

              Really interesting and inspiring episode. What a revelation ‘splicing’ is. I’m a bit critical about my finishing and this lesson has been the answer to one of my problem areas. Thank you

                    Thanks for the Log Cabin tutorials!  Can you do Log Cabin in 8 harness plain weave!?

                      Hi Karen,

                      You can absolutely do it, just have your tie-up for an 8 harness plain weave.

                        I’m completely in agreement with the video and get the 10 threads to a block and the 2 which are for symmetry and framing.

                        But when I look at the draft in the sample (pg. 4 in the Symmetrical Framed with Black example)) the threading is 8 D/L (for block A) and then the 2 for symmetry/framing making a total of 10 threads.

                        Which means now I’m lost…do I follow the sequence Jane’s given both for the sample warp (on pg. 2) which is for the Framed in White version? or do I follow the threading diagram on pgs 4 or 5 based on whether I want Black or White?

                        Does my question make sense?
                        Thanks so much. Mind is awhirl with possibility.

                        Later – never mind…watched, and re-watched and caught the 12epi that  she’s working with which, for an inch of “block A” would require 12 threads, right? I’m using 7 Bambu and going for a scarf that is 15 epi and 10″ wide. So I was planning to use “blocks” of 10 ends (repeated 15 times). That would give me an A Block much like what is drafted on pg 4 – 8 DL’s and then DD (for the framed with black option). At least that’s what I think I understand.

                        Will continue to learn! Thanks again.
