My first warp woven with the electronic dobby is finished.
The warp was weaving up very well. When you think mohair, you might think sticking yarn but I think I got the sett correctly and I had very little problem with stickiness of the yarn.
I did run out of the weft yarn but had more yarn from the warp left over.
The main weft colour is dark grey with stripes of purple in it (colour from the warp), about 50 cm with just purple and the last 60 cm is light grey from the warp. All in all it will be a challenge to make something out of this. I have plenty of the light grey left for knitting if this is needed.
Weaving with the electronic dobby will need some more practise. Specially when I'm either beaming up or finding more weft yarn, jobs that might take more than 60 seconds. That is the time that it goes in a kind of sleep mode. I will read up about it to find out how to go about this. Have to find out if it is the program doing this or the interface. At the moment I find that the interface is getting confused and not lifting the correct shafts after that. I do get it going again but I'm sure there must be a way to do this.
It's lovely sunshine (with warmer than normal temperature for this time of year) here at the moment, so the outside is calling and weaving might get a back-seat just now.
