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
