I think this is where I missed the boat...

I did not get this memo.  In the book from which this was taken, (shhh), I read where the author writes...not to be tempted to comb the warp.  @@  My guess is her warp doesn't contain 32 ends per inch (e.p.i.) Oh yes, and this weaver has a friend.  Maybe the cats will lend a hand/paw to help expedite matters! 

A demain mes amies!


  1. When in doubt read the directions? He he

  2. lol Traci!

    The author's suggestion was to 'gently lift the threads back into place'@@ -or something like that. I don't think that would have worked in this situation. All the classes ever taken instructed you to comb through the warp with your fingers or a wide toothed comb to untangle it. A lot of the tangling problem here is due to the nature of this yarn. I had the same problem when I was weaving the table runner.

    The writer of this book is very um, proper weaver. -And we all know *this* weaver is not. I am happy with that. In fact, it's part of me that I embrace. Not very partial to boxes.


I won't know what you think if you don't leave me a comment...
