Herringbone Twill: Warp on loom and ready to be threaded.

Herringbone Twill: Warp on loom and ready to be threaded.

This week I had the opportunity to finish organizing the warp for my Herringbone Twill towels. I put in a number of hours to learn how to (and how not to) wind on the warp on my new loom. It was a pleasure to work through solutions to problems as I encountered them. I love this about weaving — to work through issues as they come up. Now that I have the warp accomplished and I am moving on to the threading process.

Thankfully, my errors don’t hurt anyone (they are not safety issues) and I don’t have to feel mortified nor apologize to anyone. It is enough for me to just be: a human being working with her hands.

I hope you all have a fabulous week.

    I love that you are enjoying finding solutions for the problems you’ve encountered as you warped this loom. I’ve been working on a new design and would love to have a positive attitude toward the challenges. (I wouldn’t say I’ve had a particularly negative attitude, but it hasn’t been as positive as you sound here.)

    May the next steps go smoothly.
