Ole what's er name!
We always name our looms, and I forgot to ask Lou Ann what her name was! Maybe she will chime in so that I don't have to call her "What's her name"!
I haven't put her together yet so you will have to be content with this photo of her. The warp is sleyed 2 to a heddle and spaced in an interesting manner in the 8 dent reed.
Last week, I emptied the loom I was working on at the center. I had a white warp and natural weft placemats. The pattern is one we use all the time, we call it Ellen's Pattern. It is a warp that is spaced alternating between 2 ends in a dent and 1 end in a dent. I brought the placemats home and washed them a couple of times. While I was cutting them apart, I noticed a treadling error on one of them.
I think it looks great!
Well, I better get going and see if I can get that loom in from the car. It will need a good cleaning, and oiling too! I will post pics when Ole what's her name is up and running.
Until next time, Happy Weaving, Tina
