Experimenting

Hi there,

Gosh, two posts in one day!

This afternoon I set the loom up using Stylecraft Special DK in plum and Stylcraft Alpaca DK in orchid. The orchid colour is a lavender pinky colour that doesn’t show up too clearly in the image above. I’ve missed warp spaces evenly across the reed and matching that by inserting spaces in the weft. I’m hoping the weave will loosen up in the spaces when it’s taken off the loom. All going well I maybe able to show you tomorrow.

I called David, co-owner of the Spinning Weal shop in Clevedon who supplied my loom, asking if he can supply a second heddle kit and two reeds… yes, I’m to collect them next week. It will mean I can do more than tabby weaving.

Bye for now xx
