So I wound the 12, but that left me 24 threads short.
I looked at the spools, and they looked like they had enough on them, so in a moment of "brain fog", I took 12 threads off, and wound 24 threads onto one section.
WRONG. If you look at the picture in the previous post, you can see that those 24 threads spread out, and that section is NOT LEVEL with the others. This means that that will cause big tension problems throughout the warp, and I knew I'd screwed up as SOON as I did it. I called my friend Chris and she concurred. WRONG.
So I'll just SKIP that section entirely, and my towels will be 24 threads narrower.
Weavers can laugh at my silliness.......it's ok. I'm learning all the time.
I don't blame you all for lusting after my AVL. I love it more every time I use it. Today I finished threading it, and decided to try something I have read about another AVL owner doing. I brought the threads right over the sticky beam, did NOT tie on, and started weaving.......yahoo!!!!! heart be STILL.
This is pale yellow on a red warp. I am presently pegging a new pattern, but I don't know.....I am still loving this one.
Oh, yeah, a GIVEAWAY......well, the random.org selected #4, so that means Denise at Autumn Sky is our winner............pick a color, girl. And happy dish toweling! Congratulations!!!
We had a combo birthday/pesto making party at my house.
Can I just say our kitchen was a freaking mess.
All the basil came from my little garden at the studio.
My youngest soon to be a first time Momma herself, was busy making puff pastry with
My girls and their children make my heart sing.
I am a lucky woman.
I better get back to pegging my dobby bars for my next pattern.
These pictures are making me hungry.
