Smoky Mountain River Warp
This is all my favorite colors all in one warp! I got all my blues together and just got started. This is a 22 yard warp, pretty long for me. I should get many rag rugs out of this one, if all goes well.
I like to use 12 epi, so that I have a good thick fringe or thick hem.
I used a roll of thick paper I got at the big box store to go between the layers of warp, I usually use sticks but I was afraid that I wouldn't have enough room on the beam for that long warp! I hope it holds all in place.
I first used a complicated threading based on a rug I saw in a book, but when I started weaving I was reminded once again that a multicolored warp needs just plain old plain weave to shine, so that is what this weeks chore is going to be, rethreading and sleying this warp.
(I am also half way thru the Tuesday Weavers challenge, more on that after the reveal)
Happy Weaving, Tina
