100% Luxury Shawl


Thanks, Cathie. You are so right. But mostly I am learning what changes I need to make to the loom! I adapted it from what it was, and some of the changes I made are not working very well. It originally had a muslin skirt on the front which I removed and used nylon straps to hold the dowel for tying the warp ends to. I find the thickness of the straps to be a problem when the weaving is rolled, so I will be fitting the loom with a new muslin skirt after this first project is finished! The warp beam was a large sectional beam, and I removed the pieces with the pegs, leaving a simple roller which is 8-sided I think. I also used nylon straps there, and I think I will also change that to a muslin skirt. I hope all this makes sense, because I am not fluent in weaving language yet. Weavers-ese?
