My journey into the world of weaving

The warp from hell

2 Comments

I came so very close to ditching this project as I faced over 200 tangled ends. Who knew 8/2 unmercerized cotton would be so sticky? I didn’t! would it have been better to warp back to front after all? I suspect maybe.

But I plugged away, shaking, reshaking, untangling all the ends, and beaming slowly inch by inch.

The warp is beamed now and tied onto the front beam. All the ends are happy ends, albeit 8 or so inches shorter.

I need to tie up the treadles and then I think I can begin to weave!

Oh and yes, I had 4 broken ends so I have those to deal with.

  1. Good for you for sticking with it. You reminded me why I like b2f so much better, LOL. Look forward to seeing the weaving on the loom.

  2. Soon, Meg, soon!
