Weaving

Well I finally managed to make some time to warp my Ashford 80cm rigid heddle. Here I have used Iris at Midnight - the yarn I plied from Dyelicious 2ply lace silk and a 2ply lace merino.

After 4 hours warping the loom - I kept running into trouble because I do this so rarely - I was ready to go. The warping is a bit off centre because i was hoping to create cloth about 40cm wide but ran out of yarn so decided to stick with 35cm.

Check out the fantastic stand that my wonderful husband made for me. I had been considering buying the stand for this loom but it cost as much as the loom itself! So instead for $25 and 1 1/2 hours of his time I now have this. It just makes weaving so much easier with such a wide loom. I've used a 40cm rigid heddle on my lap and that is quite easier to us but the 80cm is just too big.
Keep smiling :-)
