My journey into the world of weaving

Threading and sleying

Leave a comment

Ends are arranged in the raddle, the weaver’s cross resurrected, the heddles are threaded, and the reed is sleyed! Sounds like a quick little job.

But no. I’ve gone back and forth on the threading, wanting to experience something different. I am doing a block weave. I think. I hope. I actually removed some of the threading, thinking I would do a different threading. But I came back to my original plan. I was glad I took out the threading because I recounted the heddles needed. Still ended up with too many on shaft two! Oh well.

The fiber is left over from the table runners of the summer. I actually haven’t decided what my weft is going to be! That’s for tomorrow.
