What's on your loom?

I thought we ought to get a thread going and find out what everyone is working on.

I have a variegated gray/beige/off white wool warp on my Harp and am using a matching mohair as the weft.  It's plain weave all the way.  I am looking forward to weaving it off and finishing.  I have been placing the weft very gently to leave room for the mohair and wool to full once they have been finished.

Join the discussion or start a new thread.  Let's get to know one another.

Sounds pretty!

I have some dark brown SWTC Craft on as warp right now (almost all of my 24" Ashford is warped up, and it's 6 yards long, my longest ever!) and for the weft I've been using some variegated cotton chenille. So far it's turning out nicely, I just need to kick it into gear and finish before we move in 8 weeks! (So I can disassemble the loom for the move)

And I'm just doing straight tabby weave, except for the occassional skipped thread which I choose to ignore. I haven't done anything other than plain weave, although I have played with warping different colors ... and still weaving them plain!

Nothing at the moment. I just took a liturgical stole off of it, but cannot figure out why my pic won't post. Oh, well.

Just took a scarflette off the loom this morning. Am planning to put a shawl on there by Saturday.

Hi Kay,

Have you taken a look at the "Help" section, there is a topic for uploading photos that is very helpful.  I suggest you start there and if that doesn't help, please feel free to PM me and I"ll help you work it out.  We would love to see your projects and will help you figure it out.

I would love to see a picture of your scrflette.  Is it in your projects?  would you post it here, too, if it's not too much bother?

thanks,

Claudia, Rigid Heddlers mom
