It's a Poor Carpenter That Blames the Tool
Truthfully, it was the tool! That's better!
This time around, I used a sportweight yarn (Red Heart Sport) in a variegated version of red/yellow/green/purple
Still using my 10-dent heddle. But what a difference!
The shuttles fly across. There's no hang-up (so far) and no missed warp threads (so far).
I love the faux plaid it's making.
Oh, and my selvedges look pretty neat.
Of course, the Wandering Heddles That Took a Trip To Illinois arrived today. They were on my porch when I got home.
Hooray for that!
After this weave is done I'll tackle the rest of the worsted weight acrylic.
Day 11 (if anyone is keeping track) puts me 1/3 of the way through ::big sigh of relief:: but I have either caught something serious (doubtful) or allergies are really, really bad all of a sudden (more likely).
This week promises to be very busy. I have no time to be sick.
Your weaving is beautiful and girl, be proud of those selvedge edges. I am still working on getting mine even. Yours are so very neat! I am envious!Post a Comment
