threading through the heddle bar
Extra length wound around block,
I am hoping this will be a scarf, so loads of length
Threading the 2nd yarn back through the heddle bar,
allowing the yarn to be highered and lowered for weaving
Neatening the ends.
All wrapped around the loom,
the back section on the right has loads of yarn wrapped around the bar.
To stop the yarn getting tangled, it was suggested I used paper to seperate the layers, but I wanted something softer, so I purchased a thin plastic Christmas table cloth and trimmed it into lengths. Perfect to keep the yarn tidy.
All finished, the front is on the right, this is where I will start weaving
I hope to be able to start weaving today, I'm not looking to get it finished quickly, I want to enjoy the process, I am using the same yarn to weave with, the random colours in the yarn should bring design.
We had snow last night, less than an inch, which we are pleased to miss most of the white stuff.
