      Opps! Forgot to mention #5…but he’s there. Well, I’m glad to know I was thinking correctly. I just don’t know why the weft wouldn’t behave. In the meantime I’m getting a good workout!

        I have a David loom and a question about tie up #2. I tied up as I normally do when presented with a rising shed tie up. I tied up the blank spaces. I then realized I’d be pulling down 4 sheds on treadles 1-4 as normal but 6 on treadles 6-8…which is quite a workout! So I decided to do the tie up as written thinking the pattern would be reversed. Now I’m pulling down 4 sheds on treadles 1-4 and only 2 sheds on treadles 6-8. What’s happening on treadles 6-8 is the weft just squishes down into the fell…it won’t stay in place. I’m assuming there is not enough warp to hold it? Or I’m doing something wrong? It seems to me it should work…but it doesn’t seem to.  Am I thinking about this correctly?

          Would a boucle weft thread work with turned twill…or would the weft faced/warped face design be  a problem with a different weight thread.

            So much fun to weave!!  8/2 cotton warp at 10 epi. 8/2 Tencel weft.8E78EB52-6AE3-4414-921D-D41E2F1D59DBCF7C2991-44D8-4FA5-9250-F1A4EAE2BBED

              Just finished a couple of towels using the threadings we learned in this session. I discovered that alternating colors in the warp changes the pattern. Good to know. I like the resulting pattern so it was a happy accident!1D7A92DC-82FC-4CF1-A461-B4B7DE1F5A865B53F5F2-AFD5-44E1-BD5A-1504CA35E7FEB8010291-3068-4470-B58F-C9B763934EB8

                I finished the gamp and learned so much! Plus it was fun to weave. I wove a small table runner with the remainder of the warp. The gamp is at 16 epi the runner at 15 epi. I have only been weaving on a 4 shaft loom since mid-January. I have learned so much! Thanks Jane and team!
