Warping of the painted silk has begun. It’s ready to be sleyed and threaded. The warp was painted earlier at a dye day at the Contemporary Handweavers of Houston‘s Guild House. I wasn’t excited about the results, so I set it aside for a few months. Now I’m ready to put my design ideas to work. I will be threading an 8 harness manifold weave. I’m still debating weft colors so that will probably need some sampling.
On the inkle loom a new tablet weaving is in the works using three colors in the warp and 16 tablets .
There is still one loom naked so I hope this next week to work on another project for it.
You are one busy creative gal!
When I was still teaching at Wayland Academy I had many of my students woking on the inkle loom…I have a great pattern book some where in the house. If I find it I will send you some patterns from the book. Its a great little loom to work on. Terri

Hi Terry, I’ve used the inkle loom more in the last couple of months than since I got it 2 years ago for Christmas.
That is great looking band!
Diane, thank you. It,s a little harder to warp directly on the inkle when you need to change colors.
