After reading my weaving book,
I have started a second project
Neat lines of colour
Loom threaded for weaving,
the colourful Christmas table cloth cut into strips are wound on the back spindle, to keep the threads from tangling, it works perfectly.
Making the design
Really neat edges
Neat start row
Loving this design
Neat rows, watching to ensure no mistakes
Measuring for width.
It much easier to work when I know what I am making, the yarn I am using is German sock yarn, 75% wool. Regia, Schachenmayr, 4 ply, I used it on my 1st project threaded on the loom, this time I am using it for the weaving as well.
For the width, I required 58 dents threaded, I wove, 13 White, 6 Burgundy, 2 White, 6 Navy, 12 White, 6 Grey, 13 White. Each hole has 2 threads, so a total of 116 across the width of the fabric
With the weaving I am doing white for as many rows are I feel I like then I do 6 rows Burgundy, 6 rows White, 6 rows Navy, 6 rows White, 6 rows Grey. I think by making the wide white rows different widths each time gives the fabric a feeling of free hand.
I have sorted the issue I had with the edges this time, I just need to ensure when I beat the last row, I keep all the rows the same.
I am again excited about this weaving, once I have finished I can sew it to make the heddle bag, I always prefer to be able to make something with my crafts, rather than packing it away.
