A Whole Lot of Counting Going On!

November 19, 2018

Amid all the counting and recounting going on for the current elections, our thoughts turned to all the counting that is part of getting a warp on the loom, especially a warp with a complex threading.

How to USE a Color Gamp

May 10, 2017

Now that you have woven a color gamp, what do you do with it?  It is a pretty piece of fabric…it looks great as a wall hanging, or as a throw in your favorite chair, and your grandbaby thinks it is to “drool” for.  But what else can you do with it? Our favorite reason for […]

Waulk On…Waulking a Blanket Part 2

April 25, 2017

We recently recounted the beginnings of the wool blanket saga, and now for part two, the finale to the ultimate 2017 Blanket Creation story. Creating the wool blanket for the waulking at Florida Tropical Weavers Guild Conference was an exercise in flexibility. When part of the goal is to use up odds and ends of JaggerSpun 3/8 […]

Arranging to Weave a Color Gamp

February 7, 2017

How to arrange the colors in a Color Gamp is a question that can lead to many enjoyable hours of planning, thinking and rearranging.  In a purely academic way, the way the colors are arranged in a color gamp doesn’t matter at all.  The purpose of a color gamp is to see the interactions of […]

What is a Color Gamp?

The Incredible Randall Darwall

This weekend we learned that Randall Darwall, an icon in the weaving world, has left us.  We are heartbroken and yet so very thankful that we have had the privilege of knowing and spending time with Randall.

Scarves from 5/2 Mercerized Cotton

December 13, 2016

As we were working on the gray Chameleon scarves, using 3 strands of 10/2 mercerized cotton yarn, it suddenly occurred to us that we already had the perfect yarn for a gray scale scarf.  It was even foolishly apparent: we could use 5/2 yarn from our gray matter kit!  Those yarns already have 5 shades of […]

New Chameleon Scarf

November 14, 2016

Weaving a project always leads to plenty of “what if” questions.  After weaving the blue-green Chameleon scarf, we started thinking about what other colorways we could use.  3 strands of 10/2 mercerized cotton yarn holds lots of potential for color combinations. Grays came immediately to mind…gray scarves are classic, and we have some lovely shades of gray. We warped the […]

Chameleon Scarf

  How could we weave scarves that change color from the beginning to the end, top to bottom, just like a Chameleon, on a Rigid Heddle Loom and not have to dye the warp to do it?  Tubular Spectrum™ mercerized yarns to the rescue!   Using a favorite tapestry technique of combining thin yarns to make […]
