Hello, dear readers :)
Well, I managed to finish off my test piece. I need a lot of practice with my edges. I loved the 5/2 weight of cotton. So smooth!
Now that this piece is off the loom, the next step was to thread my own warp. Yikes!
First, I had to make 20 heddles which went well. I really didn't think I could do this, but I took my time.
Okay, that went fine.
The heddles are a beige color.
Okay, next was the threading of the loom. I thought that it went well, even when I inserted the headers.
I thought I was ready to weave. But, I noticed one of the threads didn't go under the peg so I tried to repair it. (WRONG)
Then all my threads when berserk and I had a mess. I tried to repair it (not well, in fact) but I finished it.
I also noticed that I was missing threads on both ends. Duh, stupid, ach! Another observation was that for some reason I didn't have the correct number of threads on both sides. Duh
But here it is! LOL
I ordered a great book for the inkle loom and it's currently en route.
I hope I get better with this. The action of weaving is so calming.
The hardest part was to thread the loom and after that the actual weaving went fast.
