This sometimes it happens when you warp sectionally. It is easy to shortchange one or more sections by a rotation or two. I was actually pleased that it only happened to one section, I have done worse!
So here we are at the very end of things. I can go no further. I wove off the last of my bobbin, which remarkable enough coincided with the very last possible shed.
Here it is on the front beam. Isn't that a beautiful shot! It just makes me smile!
Here we are all piled in a heap. It had been so long since I started weaving these cloths that I had forgotten how much trouble I had at the very beginning. I had to use a temple to keep from snapping the warp threads.
I got 6 breadcloths, and yards and yards of fabric.
Things I learned:
I don't like using a temple if I can help it. It really slows me down even slower than I normally am!
I can't do finger manipulated lace for very long, it really aggravates my carpal tunnell.
I like how the warp groupings show up in the fabric. (You can see it best in the blue cloth above.)
I will never use cotton flake in a warp again. ( and I just had the blue stripes in cotton flake)!
For my next project Lou Ann had a great idea. She wants me to try some couch sized coverlets, using 8/4 carpet warp. I am anxious to get going, in fact I may go upstairs and get set up to wind on a new warp as soon as I finish here.
I got a new book this week, "Respect the Spindle" by Abby Franquemont, It is by far the best book I have read on spinning with a spindle. In response, I spent 20 minutes today spinning on a drop spindle, and 20 minutes spinning on my pedal driven spindle wheel. I hope to do that 3 to 4 times a week to increase my skill in this lost art.
Until next week, Happy Weaving and Spinning, Tina
