threading mistake!

May 30, 2012

the value of photographing your work can’t be overestimated

think you’ll remember what you did a year from now??

but here is another benefit, if somewhat questionable. The camera caught a mistake that the eye didn’t see, and only when using the flash


it’s not glaring but I know I can’t weave 5 yards with a threading mistake

it grows, bigger and bigger!  If you can’t see the mistake click on the picture to enlarge it

the pattern is log cabin with the black silk as the second weft. Four blocks in from the left selvedge a block is double width. I’m going to un-weave all of it, re-thread that part and start over, a slow and painful process

I’m happy with the way the colour pattern is working

it takes a surprising amount of rag to weave a small piece so I’m starting with the patterned sheet which I have a limited amount of and will finish weaving with the blue rags.

    Yes, I see it, (barely) and would feel compelled to redo it too, if only because what you have is so beautiful you might as well go for perfect!

      thanks Heather – I’m trying to be a recovered perfectionist, so boring, but couldn’t look at it for 5 yards and still enjoy it at the finish.

    of course you have to re-do, and it will be so much better!

      Neki – funny, but it just screams at me. I’m not as tech savvy as you, I would have marked it if only I could figure how!
      Velma, you are so-o right.

        Blandina – stay tuned, only took an hour or so…
        Bryan – more bags coming, just need to braid some ties. It is like November here and still the clematis blooms.

    Amazing how different the patterned sheet looks once it is woven.
    I am like you if I notice a mistake in my knitting I have to unravel and start all over again, but threading again is a much longer process…good luck!
