Wowie Zowie Kapowie! My mind is blown! I’ve used FiberWorks for quite awhile but knew I wasn’t using the program’s full capacity. This is amazing! So excited to expand how I use this amazing tool!June 23, 2020 at 8:34 pm in reply to: Thoughts on 3.8.2 – Weaving Your Supplementary Warp Sample #170866
I’m looking at the pdf for this sample. #1 says “Supps Down” and I don’t know what that means.
#2 says “1” down, 1″ pw, 1″ down”.
#3 says “1” down, 1″ pw, 1″ down”.
And so forth – does “down” mean the treadles 1 and 2 marked “down”?
Sorry the video seems to say something different but my brain is iffy sometimes.
I forgot to say: thank you so much for replying! It is helpful to know I’m not alone in this process of learning!
I did retie them all, and things are progressing more smoothly! I googled “tying on linen apron” and found several comments that linen may be wiggly at the start but should behave after the header is woven. I found this to be true!
Hi! On the Sample #2 Colour & Weave Gamp, Page 2, under Colour sequence on page 2, the 7th line down says, “48 DDDD/LLLL – warping with two ends in your hand” Unclear on what this means – do I hold four darks together and four lights together? Or…?
I feel clear about “48 D/L warping with two ends in your hand”, “44 DD/LL with four ends in your hand”, and even “50 D/L/DD/L with five ends in your hand”, but the above has me stumped.October 22, 2018 at 10:41 pm in reply to: Season 2, Episode 2 – More on Division of Space & the Asymmetry Sample #49709
I wove a towels and a napkin 18 epi and they turned out nicely – washed and ironed in hems to but haven’t stitched yet. Opened the sett up to 12 epi and came here for ideas and inspiration. I have no boucle, so have been deciding whether to use 8/2, 8/4, or 3/2. I’m seeing here that people have used 8/2, 8/4, and wool! So tomorrow I’m ready to see what happens with 12 epi with other sizes until I run out of warp.
My selvedges aren’t great but I was concentrating on squares and ppi. Also I have done better with starting new colors. These are, however, high contrast, so it’s great practice getting all the pieces and parts together!October 12, 2017 at 7:10 pm in reply to: Tell us what you think about Season 1: Episode 9: Weaving a Mohair Blankie #34155
Do mohair blankies continue to shed over their lives?
Thank you – that makes perfect sense, but I was reluctant to proceed without some support. Much appreciated.
