      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 Plaid E35D4ADF-08A6-4F6E-B2E8-C0ED9B72EFB9CF7D029C-8ACD-4A7C-95F0-9635583E01B6174E2801-F43E-42A7-8B6F-4750DE5B07BA82BFB755-630E-41E9-8252-22892C4CBE525F0D9298-5D3A-479E-A03C-FE382641915F

          Hi Sue,

          I had done that at first then scrambled for a pencil and watched again and paused each time to make lots of notes.. as a baby weaver, for me that is beauty of these being recorded, I can go back and watch and make notes even count repeats and take screen shots of things I like and work the pattern out.  She makes my brain hurt with exercise and I love it 🙂  happy weaving

            I really love the color choice, was the weft cotton or silk?  looks silk…   I finished my small samples and want to move onto a scarf today

                this is just the one sample before and after wet finishing..  I was just so giddy this morning looking at it all nice and dry. I have never made anything so delicate..   Later I’ll try the silk sample then scarf.  Don’t know where I’d wear them (we live very rural )  Another thought is to make several more small ones a dresser scarves and such.  We shall see what my imagination comes up with

                  Made a small sample on my Jane table loom just so see what denting was all about. That was fun and I can’t wait to make a silk sample and then onto scarfs

                    I asked over at the video but will post here too.   when working with the silk, should the hemstitch be done in cotton like the warp or should I use the silk?  I’m worried about it slipping off

                      when weaving the silk samples do I use 16/2 cotton for the hemstitch so it “sticks” and not slide out? finished a small cotton sample tonight 🙂 LOVE this denting

                        My Old Gilmore (1940’s) didn’t do well with this method so I switched back to  – throw – beat – beater back – change shed – repeat  and he is happy.   On my Jane table loom I have to  throw – beat – beater back – change shed – beat again  – repeat…

                        These just happen to work for me and my looms. For others it may be a different sequence. I did try her way and it just wasn’t working for me.  That’s the one thing I really admire and that draws me to JST for learning is how she is not set on hard line “rules”  she is full of suggestions to try

                        I believe each loom has it’s own personality

                            I wove my first sample set on my brand new Louet Jane 27″ loom.  OMGosh!  learned loads of fun things.  I was really getting bored with the length of the warp but I’m so glad I finished it.  the only thing I didn’t try was cutting out the red and adding black. Maybe another project I’ll give it a try.  I did open the loom up from 18EPI to 12EPI  and used Boucle yarn for the weft, again OMGosh I love the Boucle … it may have to be a staple in the yarn pantry for sure.

                              I spent the evening cutting out photos from magazines I collected at the library’s free table. Then today I took the time to clean my stash of 8/2 cotton organize them and  create my own color cards so I can see what I own. I do have the sample kits for the rest of season 2 but add them to my color cards as I open each kit.  thanks so much for the idea now I’m inspired to create something using everything learned from this episode

                                no worries Giny,

                                I emailed Kristie at BlueFlag and popped into town and am the proud owner of an 18″ Swedish closed bottom shuttle 🙂

                                I also had just pulled my first sample set out of the dryer and took them in to show her.  Once they are all hemmed and pressed I’ll put pictures in the appropriate forum section     Thanks so much for your input

                                  Oh I just love Bluster Bay shuttles,they are just 20 miles from me and I shop at his wife’s weaving studio all the time. But excuse my ignorance,  are you referring to the low profile ones that use the paper quills?  I own several styles of his shuttles just for their beauty.  can you post a photo of yours?  I could run into town today and get a new shuttle (oh darn)
