Today I made some photos whilst out on a walk. I walk in a newly planted wood and it is fascinating to see what grows there.
I've had another week of flu symptoms so it was nice to be able to get out again.
I unpicked about 1cm so that I was able to secure the loose ends between the fringes. I left those to the last to do as I had to add quite a few threads to make up for all the broken ones. But I'm pleased with the result.
I took a few photos but not enough to show what I did.
Here the white scarf next to the black. They look so totally different, but the only difference is the black and white yarn. The coloured silk yarn in the black scarf was woven 3/1 twill and in the white scarf this was woven 2/2 twill, the black and white yarn was tabby woven. And I made the warp in a slightly different way so the colours are not as neat together as in the black scarf. But I think the end result is fine.
10 from the 30 threads here were gone. What I did was repair in pairs so that I could start with one thread, weave it through the cloth with a needle and the other end of the thread was the 2nd thread. repeating this another 4 times making in total 10 threads. On the other side were 6 threads missing.
It was just so fiddly that I forgot to photograph what I was doing. So only have the before and after photo.
My loom has been empty now for the last week. High time to get another warp on the go. Will it be more about techniques or shall I make another scarf? At the moment I need some weaving that will not need a lot of thought like getting more into a technique so probably I'll get another scarf on the go. My father is not to well, will have to see how things go with him. Hence the need for a relaxing weaving and lots of walks next to visiting.
