This beautiful, sunny, spring-like weekend should have found me outside, building walkways or taking down the Christmas lights (yes, they're still up! Gotta problem with that?), but instead, I had a deadline to meet. There are two babies for these blankets, and one of them came two weeks early, late Saturday night. This is the very beginning of the first one, with one motif tone-on-tone, the next in the hand-dyed baby blue, then on to the body in tone-on-tone.
I've just started the end border of the blue, late yesterday afternoon, but the weaving is slow going, due to a problem I've never had to this extent. I'm asking for your help again, Dear Readers! This is a wide warp for me, and I'm thinking that's the problem, but I want to know how you address this issue. When I throw the shuttle across the shuttle race, the bobbins spin more than they need to, causing the threads to wrap around the back of the pins. The shuttle stops and I have to reach in the warp and either untangle it in the warp, or push it back out and untangle it before I can weave the pick again.
Have you had this problem? What do you do? Any suggestions will be appreciated!
In the meantime, I hope YOU have happy weaving!
