Wow! I can’t tell you how excited I am that others are excited about this Weave Along. I did get a few questions, so I wanted to share the answers for everyone incase someone else had the same question.
To start with, this is the first time I’ve ever done anything like this, so it’s very experimental for me. I’m really hoping that everyone can follow along and make a complete weave at the end. Please email me or leave a comment if you have a question so I can hopefully answer it for all of you.
Here are some of the questions I’ve received so far:
What does the finished weave look like?
I actually don’t know, I’m just making this as I go which seemed like a good idea at the time. Hopefully it won’t stress me out later, lol. I guess I have a general idea of what the weave will look like, but not a very detailed idea and I’ll be making changes to my loose plan as I see the weave build. So this should be fun!
Is the weave along for beginners?
Well I hope it can be followed by experienced weavers and beginners. I’m trying to make it easy to follow, but if you feel you might not be up for it yet I have a free beginner’s weaving pattern that I send to those who sign up for my email list. You could start there and come back to the weave along later.
I don’t have the same loom as you, can I still follow along?
I absolutely understand that not everyone has the same loom. I have quite a few different designs of looms and I think that this weave along can still be adapted to whatever you’re weaving on. For the first part where we double warp the loom, just warp your loom once and then warp back over it. I double warped a different loom, that you can see here. If your loom already has a very dense amount of warp threads per inch, then don’t bother with the double warping. If you run into a specific problem with your loom and you’re not sure how to adapt the weave along, then reach out and I’ll help the best I can. I really want these weaving techniques to be available to everyone, so I’ll do my best to help you use what you have on hand.
That answers the questions I’ve had so far. I’m really enjoying making something together.
