Centerweave

My journey into the world of weaving

Beginnings – good beginnings

I have successfully sleyed the reed and just finished threading the heddles in my front to back warping! It is fun. Only one rocky moment when sleying: I dropped the cross so I am sure all those ends are helter skelter.

Next is tying onto the back beam and then beaming. I’ll take a picture at that point.

I got sliding hook flyer and bobbins for my Ashford. There was a moment when I thought I would have to return it when I couldn’t get the whorl off! But unlike my other flyer where you screw the whorl off, with this one, you pull it off! Then I thought it was missing a set of hooks to help hold the fiber against the flyer but I found them. Installed and I am spinning away on some romney hogget and silk (97%/3%).

I had received two gift cards for Christmas so I went to A Loom with a View and bought this book:

Fleece and Fiber Sourcebook

It is gorgeous and I love how it is written.
