learning together

July 5, 2012

second class for new students – warping the loom from back to front

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

lease sticks firmly in place

I use paper between the layers of warp yarns

my favorite paper is old marine charts, it is heavy and strong

 

 

 

thank you Sandi for the pictures

my tea towel warp has been a learning experience, too

every stage has had its problems

not exactly as I had planned but I’m happy never-the -less

6 towels to go and I can’t wait to finish. I can see this in a fine linen and also silk

it would make cuddly baby blankets in bright colours

    What a lovely, lovely pattern. The creamy tones are so elegant.

      Blandina – I like the neutrals, too and will use different combinations on each towel
      Ali – the different fibres and some textured yarns work well in this weave structure
