Weaving Delays

posted in: Weaving 0

Look at all the progress I have made on my waffle weave dish towels.  Yep, if you look very closely, you will see I have exactly one pick of purple cotton above the yellow header.  Ok, so it may not look like much progress, but after having a huge sleying error, resleying, and then finding out I needed to add two more threads for a floating selvedge, it really is progress!  Or should I say, it will be progressing now!

After I resleyed the reed, I saw that I had only left one thread on each side for the floating selvedge.  I had to add another thread to each side.  I wrapped the thread around an intarsia knitting bobbin and weighted it with hemostats.
