My New Toy named "Monster"
I have now purchased my floor loom. I got a really good deal ($500.00) which included the bench and 2 boat shuttles and a warping board. It is a 4 harness, 6 treadle Gilmore in perfect shape. Although I attempted to try and warp it up last night, I hate to report I failed. Although I failed; I'm a warrior and will get through this cycle. I have a new set of fresh eyes and after reading the Pattern Weaving by Rabbit Goody, I was able to read and see where I made my mistakes last night.
My problem was figuring out how to use the warp that I completed on the warp board and transfer to the reed/heddles. Now that I have seen the error or my ways, I will attempt to warp this baby this evening.
I am hoping that I can figure it all out as I did the RH. I believe I can; but I will be submitting questions when I get confused.
Here's a pic of my "Monster". I call it that because the owner's husband called it Monster when I picked it up and it was said in a good way. Also, it will be cranking out some Monster projects! Sorry pictures are side views.
