It’s Warped!

InkleLoom2Yesterday I warped it.  I used the method that Michael Cook of Wormspit.com talks about … 2 colors only and continuous warp.  Here’s hoping that figuring out the double weave process won’t be too difficult. 

It’s with at great deal of dismay that I found the pages that helped me so much from Eve the Just are no longer viable links.  I don’t know how to look to see if they are cached anywhere else or not.  What a loss to the tablet weaving community!

Annie McHale of A Spinner Weaver.com  wondered about the movement of the warp with so many pegs… well… it requires a bit of doing (and I’m not sure if would be better if I had done a better job of sanding) but it can be done without much trouble.  Since  I have never had an inkle loom before I am not in a position to know how easily it should advance.  I can say that this is TW4soooo much easier to use than the small one I have been using that I am totally in love with this one!  This first pattern is a simple one… I warped it to try to do double weave alphabets and things, but am having fun just watching this go by…lol

After doing enough of this to make a useful length I will probably try to learn some other things…

 

Hope all have a wonderful day….

    You could try the internet archive wayback machine, http://www.archive.org/index.php
    (Though it only works if you know the link for her page)
    you just type (or paste in) the web address that you are looking for and it will show you what pages it has archived.
    It may not have the latest changes before it disapeared, but hopefully will have some pages.

    I’ve got a more streamlined version of my website up and running now that will hopefully never go away. Feel free to come and check it out and give me feedback if you like.
