I’m not sure “rebegun” is a word but that’s what I have done!
I am weaving two scarves: 6 inches wide and about 60 inches long. For warp, I am using Jo Sharp Silkwood Aran Tweed, “licorice” color. For weft, MY homespun which is a mix of merino wool and alpaca. Threading was simple: 1-2-3-4. The pattern is a 2/2 twill.
I wove a few repeats of the pattern and saw this:
As Peg says in her post, photos do not lie and blogging one’s work keeps one honest. Truly. If it was between me and the scarf, I might not have rethreaded. Another reason was one my husband posed. He creates arches out of cement blocks. To make those blocks, he has to design patterns and cut into wood. When he makes a mistake, he has to toss the wood and begin again. At least, he says, I don’t have to throw away everything!
So I discovered where the error was and learned it only affected half the ends. I only had to rethread and resley 30, not 60 ends!
It didn’t take long and soon I was weaving away again. I am very pleased with the outcome!
It is going quickly! I do have a broken end already and I am very conscious of the delicate warp. It’s far more delicate than I like but I am using both gentle tension and beat. And so far, both warp and weft are happy!
As an aside, see the yarn I scored in an auction!
It is Deerfield Valley Yarns from WEBS. The color is “chestnut”. I got 7 skeins, the little bag, some patterns, a book, and knitting needles – all for $60.00! A steal! I should feel guilty (the auction was a good cause) but I just feel smug.
