My first weaving project, a sampler warped by Janet onto her old rigid heddle loom and loaned to me to practice on.
Edited 6/16/11 to add: Yardage used estimated at approx. 500 yards, using this calculator.
3/10/11: Attended rigid heddle weaving demo at local fiber guild March meeting; borrowed Janet’s loom.
3/12/11: Practiced plain weave; added a sword to my arsenal of tricks to deepen the shallow shed on this loom.
3/13/11: Added some 2x2 and 4x4 leno twists
3/14/11: worked with 2 swords/pick-up sticks to create additional sheds for denser weave (trying to find name of pattern, if anyone knows)
3/15/11: ‘Brooks Bouquet’ lace pattern from Ashford (causing weft yarn to untwist); also added a row of multi-colored loose mohair & wensleydale locks, and 3 rows of orange silk noil
3/16/11: Clasped weft section, ended with plain weave.
3/17/11: Cut off the loom & wove in the ends. I’m officially hooked on weaving.
