My journey into the world of weaving

Beginning to weave

Leave a comment

It’s actually pre-beginning. I have finished sleying and I tied up the shafts. Now I am fussing with the sheds. The shuttle seems to be getting caught up in the lower ends. In studying the problem, I can tie up the shafts so they open wider for the sheds but when I do that, the bottom layer rises and it’s hard to throw the shuttle! So I am looking at the raddle which in my Tools loom I always keep on for weaving. Maybe I won’t because it does raise the whole warp by almost an inch. This is a dilemma I’ll save for tomorrow morning when I am thinking more clearly.
