Well you have done it again! Pushed my brain to max capacity! I absolutely loved the denting episode. Having said that, I would like to try one of the patterns, but wider. I would like to make a bathing suit wrap for my amazing sister to wear on her vacation while walking the beautiful beaches in Mexico with her hubby. This project will use my whole 36″ weaving width. So if I have 24 EPI in 36″ that is 864 total ends. However, in this case it is only half if I am denting, right? So I would use 432 total ends? Also, if I plan to sectional warp, would I warp a one inch section on the beam and then skip one or just warp the inner 18 sections of the beam? I hope that makes sense.

This is what happens when you short yourself 2 ends on your “wee little fart of a warp”! Who ever heard of a warp with 2 ends! My husband walks around saying “wee little fart” now! Thanks Jane! LOL!March 29, 2021 at 9:03 pm in reply to: Thoughts on 2.2.4 – Sample One – Asymmetry at the Loom #201343
I completed the first sample or dish towel in my case. Started the second one and did not like my design so changed it up. We’ll see when it comes off the loom how crazy it looks. I was dying to try some boucle so I wove a couple inches with the green…uh no!! Switched to the Natural and while I don’t think it goes well graphically I love the feel of it for towels! I am going to need boucle in every color!!March 26, 2021 at 7:32 pm in reply to: Thoughts on 2.2.4 – Sample One – Asymmetry at the Loom #201098
OMG!! I am so excited! I remember when Jane was wound on one of the warps and showed us at the end when everything was the same length that meant you did a good job! I think warps are just as pretty as the end product when they have all the colors running through them under tension! I chose to go ten yards.March 26, 2021 at 7:25 pm in reply to: Thoughts on 2.2.4 – Sample One – Asymmetry at the Loom #201097
These look great David!! I just got my warp wound on. Deciding whether to thread tonight or in the morning! You are inspiring me!
Hi Jocelyn! I got my warp done last night and hoping to dress the loom when I get off work. Looks like we are relatively close in the process. Feel free to message me here or on Facebook so we can keep up with eachother. I already messed it up and it’s not even off the warping mill yet! LOL!
Hi Sandra, I was hoping to get some clarification on the problem Leslie had with her warp losing tension in January. If it was me I would have dressed the loom like normal then just before threading when you cut that end, could I not have soaked up all the loose tension there? that end would be uneven so I would have to cut further back, but would that not have solved her problem? I just want to understand in case I ever have this problem.
Lindsey, I know this is an old post so I hope you see this message. I am a new weaver with only a couple of projects under my belt. I recently purchased a used LeClerc 8 shaft Jack Loom. With that loom came a ton of fiber. I have a lot of 8/2 Cotton Tencil and fell in love with your wrap. Would you be willing to share your pattern/draft? Thanks you in advance.
