Happy March everyone. It has been a while since we had a check-in thread in this group. I hope many of you will come back to check in regularly. We all know even just a little bit of weaving each day adds up into big wins at the loom! The weather is a bit more spring-like here and I look forward to seeing what everyone is weaving this month!
I got about a foot done on a difficult project. This is a cotton chenille warp on an echo threading. The first piece, with 8/4 cotton weft, wormed. Only one color warp wormed. The warp was rethreaded at 15 epi (from 12) and woven with 8/2 weft. This piece is stabile so far. The piece on the loom is being woven with 16/2 weft, which is slow. When this is done, I'll try another one with 8/4 to see if the increased sett is enough, by itself, to stop the worming. These are beautiful pieces, and I would like to master this to make a saleable product. Why one color wormed was never found, but the floats were a bit long. And planning more summer and winter drafts.
It's been a month any new progress or pictures
That is great Big White Sofa
That is great Big White Sofa Dog! Any progress on big projects is something to celebrate! I look forward to seeing this project! I do hope you are able to create a saleable product!!!
I've been achieving Daily Weaverliness on the weekends and finished my 8 meters of plain weave linen!!! A very simple project, but very gratifying, as I'm weaving my own seam finishing tape for a handwoven robe I've made for my medieval costume wardrobe! :)
