|My 8 harness Schacht table loom with obnoxious warp.|
might have finished it, when the ol' light-bulb clicked on.
|Warp undone from the back beam.|
|The cloth beam retied with even tension.|
|Weaving goes better with even tension. The red header is handspun.|
|At first, I thought I wouldn't enjoy weaving on the table loom because there are no convenient treadle tie ups moving multiple shafts with just one push. But I'm really coming to enjoy the levers. I have a fairly simple system of posting the lever numbers for each row on the castle and just pulling each row and weaving. I find it both relaxing and enjoyable and I don't seem to get lost as easily. The last thing I need to do with this loom is master warping it so I get a nice even tension. I'm planning to use this loom to weave my runners for the Ravelry Warped Weaver's weave along, so wish me luck! It's always nice to show off something that looks decent.|
Today, we did another foray to the farmer's market and now I have two pots of marinara sauce on the stove. I know it's a lot of work, but the tomatoes were a great deal and this winter I'll have all these easy meals ready to go! That means more time for weaving. Yeah!
