Tapestry Loom etc....
Here's the tapestry loom mentioned in my previous post:
(apologies for the fuzzy focus...must have something to do with the shiny surface and limited skills of the photographer..me.) The weaving area is 16" wide by 22" tall. Note the big connectors on the side uprights which allow for increasing the tension on the warp. The loom is the perfect height to work at when placed on the coffee table or the loom bench.
I wanted a warp separater at the top, so dh installed this spring which is positioned at 10 EPI:
Here's today's sampler weaving in progress on a 3/16 linen warp with various sport to worsted weight knitting yarns:
The instructions I'm following are in this book. This sample is only about 2.5" wide.
The following is for Leigh:
It's a 4 harness summer & winter sampler where the color stripes do not line up with the S&W blocks both in warp and weft. The fibers are 8/2 & 10/2 unmerc. cotton and the red is a cotton flake yarn. This sampler was inspired in a S&W intensive correspondence study with Mary Bentley of Vancouver through HGA about 10 years ago. I've always loved this sample because it's complex appearance for a 4 harness fabric.
And now it's time to get back to the loom.
