My journey into the world of weaving

I have doubleweave!


I finished the threading and the sleying. I tied up the shafts; I got my treadling pattern (an easy right to left and left to right).

I wove 8 picks of scrap yarn to spread the warp. Then I raised shuttles 2 and 5…and misery, no double weave. So I checked the tie up and saw the error! I retied the second treadle to be correct. The scrap yarn was taken out and I rewove it!

And voila! doubleweave! Two actual separate layers! I can see why one must check often the two layers.

  1. Congratulations!
    I love this bit when the planning and setup is done and it’s all sitting there waiting to happen 🙂

  2. Me too! Of course I have no illusions that it will all be smooth! I’m sure there will be errors and I already see two potential broken ends. But what’s a broken end!
