I am pretty excited.....I finally warped the table loom all by myself!!!! Honestly, I have had this huge roadblock to doing this. Not quite sure why except that I have struggled .....even with my teachers' help. There always seemed to be some kind of problem. Perhaps that was a blessing because it forced me to learn a lot about what not to do and how to fix mistakes. This past weekend I pulled out some not so favorite yarn (just in case I ruined it) and went for it. Mind you, the scarf warp was only 72 ends ( about 7" x 72"), but all went well and I am merrily weaving this simple plain weave scarf. Maybe I am on my way over the fear hump. Next to warp the Macomber....a bit larger challenge!
This picture doesn't do the colors in the yarn justice. The warp is a variegated purple, and the weft a pretty soft gray with some tiny metallic flecks. It is quite soft. I am hoping it will have a nice drape.
