Do you remember back here I said I had a plan for the gap in the warp?
And the next post I said there were two mistakes? Oh yes, I treadled 1,2 1,2 instead of 1,2,3,4. Well I went where no weaver would dare go and pulled out two rows then with the help of a tapestry needle manipulated the threads and now I defy anyone to find the error. I can't.
Susan's post showing her beautiful Navajo shawl and she said she had picked out 43 inches I thought OMG, surely another solution. I was weaving away and bent down to measure for the 1.5 metre mark and right at the 1 metre marker was 2.5cm, a whole inch, of floats right across the fabric. Obviously more than one treadling error. It was the weekend and the factory the merino came from was either sold or in receivership so I had no idea if I could get more yarn. I new I had enough black merino to finish the wrap but if I cut out 21 inches I wasn't sure so nothing for it but to unweave all 21 inches. Every 4 rows I had to wind the yarn back on the pirn. Just as well I did as I needed all I had. Worth it don't you think?
