This week I signed up to Kelly Casanova Weaving Lessons online, just before the prices increased. So that is where most of my time has gone. I have already watched quite a few of the tutorials and when I watched her ‘From Woe to Go’ beginners weaving course I realised the way I’d warped my loom with cotton a few weeks ago could be a lot better. So I have been carefully unwinding all the warp! I’m so glad it had been threaded double and so no ends had been cut. So although a bit time consuming it is unravelling and I’m nearly done!
Before anyone get’s excited about this quilt, it was bought not made by me. 😀
So, I’m excited to get started on some new projects with my newly learned skills. Still lots more classes to do so that will likely be my next few weeks. Some courses I can knit whilst watching, but some need more attention.
I mentioned last week I’d ordered some second reeds for my loom in 3 sizes (10dpi, 12.5dpi and 15dpi), well the company, Fibrehut, issued a refund for the size 10dpi as they were out of stock, so I ordered that from the Handweavers Studio (with some more cotton thread!) and that arrived super quick yay! However, I’m still waiting on the reeds I ordered from the original company!
If the reeds had all arrived I may not have signed up for the course, so hopefully my next weaving will be better. If they don’t arrive Monday then I’m going to warp up for a smaller project using thicker yarn.
Did I own up last week to ordering a cone of Lilys Sugar’n Cream yarn to weave some teatowels? That also hasn’t arrived yet, but Covid is causing all sorts of delays and so I just need to be patient and not want to do all the new ideas straight away!
