I kept the two warps separate and I started to wind on, only to discover that the paper is too narrow for this width of warp! So I pulled out the mini blinds that Lou Ann is so fond of and cut a bunch more to size for this project. I only hope I have enough, 36 yards is a lot to wind on with sticks!
This week has not been the best week for weaving. In fact this morning has been my only time this week, in the Studio. This afternoon I am off and running again, so I had to leave it just like this. It will be waiting for me when I get home this afternoon, and again tomorrow morning, I expect to spend several hours on it then, as well.
I think it will be well worth all the trouble though. I will be able to weave much wider towels (even the Waffle Weave) that will please me and my customers much more than those sad narrow ones. I suppose that the old mountain weaver that wound these long warps had a specific purpose for them that eludes me, maybe it was table runners, or something like that.
That is all for now, Until next time, Happy Weaving, Tina
