I thought I’d post a couple of photos of the progression of the gamp I’m weaving. This is in Harrisville wool. The weather finally broke and we are back to tolerable temperatures. I did a lot of weaving this past Sunday and a little on Wednesday.
I have to say that this project has taught me a lot more about weaving than color interaction. I’ve had a couple of issues with the tension on my warp (which I’ve corrected) and I also broke a warp thread the other night. That was a bit more of a challenge figuring out what would work and what wouldn’t. It broke between the heddle and the reed. I thought I could knot a new thread in – not. So I just put a new thread from the back to the front and weighted it like I’ve done with a broken floating selvage. It worked I’m happy to say. The best part was the lack of panic on my part, I just figured out how I could make it work. Six months ago that might have been a problem, I would have had a more difficult time figuring it out.
I hope to have this off of the loom this weekend. As beautiful as it is I’d much rather be doing overshot, plain weave is just so boring.
