Happy New Year and a hot tip for warping

Hello, friends. Happy New Year. I’ve been neglecting my blog for a bit and I am placing part of the blame on my semi-antiquated PC, which finally crossed the rainbow bridge after Christmas. It had a good run. But a two hour time-frame to boot up is not very convenient. I was fortunate to acquire a new piece of tech, but it is new and different. It has taken me a while to get familiar with the basics. This blog post is my first adventure with photo and video transfers. Fingers crossed!

I’ve continued working with warp-faced weaves into the new year. I completed this eight shaft design on the winter solstice:


I’ve since moved on to a placemat design and hope to work this into a pattern. It is a four shaft design and has just two colors:

Warp faced weaves often entail warps with many hundreds of threads. Hundreds of ends often means multiple warp chains — MANY warp chains. So here is my latest tip to help keep your chains orderly! (Believe me, it is worth it to have a system. Ask me how I know. %$#@*!).

Save those bread bag tags!

That’s all for now. Looking forward to lots of weaving and pattern making this year. Thanks for checking in.

Be well,

Kate K.
