Beaming this warp was slow going, but it’s on the loom and I’ve made a start on threading the heddles. I count and group my heddles before I start threading them to help minimize the risk for errors. I really don’t want to have to re-thread when there are so many ends involved! Before I did any of that though, I added 10 extra shafts and treadles (14 of each on the go now) and did the tie-up. There won’t be any progress for the next week: my parents are coming to visit. We live 1600km apart, so we have to make the most of the time we have together. . . . #wea#weaving #weavingprocess #sol#solvning #solv #heddles #threadingheddles #repweave #ripsväv #weaving #handweaving #väv #vävning #weven #weben #redandwhite #rödochvit #roodenwit #handmadeinsweden #öxabäck #hannieshantverk #handmadetextiles #candycanecolors

45 kilometers of yarn. Neatly divided into 4 warp chains of 628 threads each. Who knew you could get muscle ache from preparing a warp! Feeling all the working up and down the warping mill in the spot just above my knees. . . . #warp #varp #war#warpchain> #warpchain #varpfläta #varpflätor #varpa #warppreparation #repweave #ripsväv #thatsalotofyarn #wea#weavingprocess #weavingprep #weaving #handweaving #väv #vävning #weven #weben #redandwhite #rödochvit #roodenwit #handmadeinsweden #candycanecolors #polkagris #sufferingformyart #hannieshantverk

Thank you for all your responses to the rug I posted on Friday - I’m still smiling about them. Up next: red & white, because it is Q4 and that means a certain holiday is coming up... To be fair though, I’ve wanted to get this on the loom for ages. The yarn has been patiently waiting on the shelf since February. . . . #weaving #handweaving #väv #vävning #weven #weben #warppreparation #varpning #weavingprocess #weavingprep #redandwhite #rödochvit #roodenwit #repweave #ripsväv #candycanecolors #warpingmill #garnställning #handmadeinsweden #handmadetextiles #slowtextiles #startinganewproject #garnhusetkinna #hannieshantverk

Tadaaa! Cut off the loom Sunday evening, hemmed yesterday afternoon and now on its way to its forever home. I am ridiculously pleased with how this turned out and my brain is buzzing with ideas for designs to weave in rep. There will definitely be more of this in 2018! . . #reprug #ripsmatta #repweave #handwovenrug #handvävdmatta #han#handgewebtppich #handgewebt #handgeweven #weaversofinstagram #iloveweaving #julmatta #christmasrug #kerstkleed #ripsväv #weaving #vävning #weven #weben #scandinavianstyle #scandinavianrug #swedishrug #scandinavianchristmas #candycanecolors #polkagris #hantverk #textilhantverk #hannieshantverk #tadaaaa #red#redandwhitechristmas #redandwhite

Ready to weave! As far as I can tell, there are no threading or sleying errors and the tie-up is correct too. No prizes for guessing who doesn’t feel like sleeping in tomorrow morning! (Just a teensy tiny bit excited about this...) . . #rea#readytoweave #repweave #ripsväv #ripsmatta #reprug #julmatta #christmasrug #readytoweave #weaving #vävning #weven #weben #handwovenrug #handvävdmatta #ontheloom #öxabäck #floorloom #weavingloom #weaversofinstagram #iloveweaving #candycanecolors #polkagris #hantverk #textilhantverk #hannieshantverk

And so order gradually emerges from the apparent chaos... Most of my warps are in a single colour, so I’m really enjoying seeing the pattern appear in the colours. . . #wea#weavingprep #sol#solv #solv #heddles #threadingheddles #repweave #ripsväv #ripsmatta #reprug #julmatta #christmasrug #weaving #vävning #weven #weben #weaversofinstagram #iloveweaving #can#candycanecolors #candycane #polkagris #zuurstokjes #thatsalotofyarn #hannieshantverk
