My journey into the world of weaving

The joy of doubleweave

1 Comment

I wove almost 10 inches today – it is tiring work! Weave an inch, remove the temple, check to make sure there are still two layers, advance the warp if needed, set the temple, weave an inch.

Not without some setbacks. The most serious thus far after the original mis-tie up, is I noted a glob of yarn on the underside several picks back. Worth unweaving? You bet. I did so and straightened out the glob and continued to weave.

But I am so excited this is working! Well, it should. I was fastidious in my set up and preparation.

Here’s almost 10 inches:

Almost 10 inches

Of course I gave a couple of hours to the second annual Winter Fuzz Fest in Exeter! I saw many friends and had many inspiring and useful converstations about weaving doubleweave, spinning, making garments, and seeing a demo of a very old wheel. The owner wove standing up! She said she preferred it to sitting. Instead of the feet treadling the wheel, you do so by hand! I did buy two balls of roving from Riverslea Farm. I haven’t even spun last year’s! but resistance is futile.

  1. That’s looking real good! Going back and ‘fixing’ something is good for your peace of mind.
