the experimental woven shibori is underway
the pink thread is the resist/gathering thread and will be removed once the fabric is dyed
the loops at the selvedge make it easier to pull up
the warp is 5 yards long so I may change the resist pattern but…
that means re-pegging the dobby, ugh!
I’m also trying out a new end-feed shuttle with 20/1 linen weft
the shuttle was a gift, I was a little skeptical
actually I dislike (intensely) using new equipment/ electronics/tools etc.
as promised, it is WONDERFUL. How did I weave for 35 wears without it?
but – is it threaded correctly? should the yarn come out that little hole? there doesn’t seem to be any way to get the thread to the hole. the tension box fits very snuggly
it seems to be working well so for now that is the way it goes.
