Color Study Group

06 Sep

I’m in a color study group with my weaving guild. We spent a couple of days together measuring out the warps and warping the looms together. Now we’re passing the various table looms among the members and everyone will weave about a hand towel length’s worth before passing it on to the next member.

I’m the first person on this particular pattern, called “gray matters.” I noticed a threading error right away and after consulting with one of the coordinators of the whole thing, I cut off the offending heddle and made a string heddle in the right place. I was pretty tickled with myself. 🙂

So now I’m trucking along, more than halfway done. My advice for next time though is to have one of the more experienced weavers go first. I had a lot of tension issues and I did my best and hopefully it will all be fine for the next person, but I think it would have gone more smoothly had someone better done the adjustments.

    what are those thick bright pink cords for? Is it to make the beginning of the weaving more even?
