ok, so I am going to see what I can sew out of this piece….and I am weaving more now. Same warp, more saori. I really did not enjoy the pattern straight but I like throwing it in periodically along with some roving, yarn bits, and clasped weft.
I also tried some different treadling patterns. The warp is drafted as 1-2-1-4-3-4, which I think is Bird’s Eye. I used various warps and will Never Again use NZ Wool. It was bloody awful. Sticky and breaky. My achy breaky warp. Moving right along….when this warp is woven, I am selling this HD loom to a friend and starting up with a Burnhams Loom, bigger and hopefully better.
I’ll post pics.

I just received a shipment from Frabjous Fibers which included the most yummy Banana Silk and Sari Silk Ribbon, as well as Peace Silk, which is humanely cultivated so as not to harm the silk worms in the process. They get to have a life before the silk is harvested, they can fly free…
Just some of the new pins! I want them all to be Mine!
More photos to follow soon!
