Well, after my Twill adventures which used four shafts on my rigid heddle loom, I was all fired up and ready to challenge myself again.
This time, played around with iWeaveIt to design and the threading and and treadling. I’m sure if I searched Handweaving.net I might find the draft I have designed, but you never know.
It took a little time to thread the heddles. And this time, rather than a heddle rod, I added a third heddle instead.
So, on the loom I have three heddles plus a pick up stick for the fourth heddle. There was a lot of being bent over to ensure I was threading the right holes and slots, and to ensure that no slot had more than two warp threads.
My draft is Tromp as Writ, which is where the threading is replicated in the treadling, or essentially how I weave.
So, here is the start.
And, for those interested to see this in action, here is a video for one repeat.
Please excuse the moment I catch the tripod and jog the filming.
All being well, I’ll have this finished for the weekend. So, look out for more updates.
