I have finished weaving the Megado and tidied the loom up. I will sit this evening and check for ends that need to be woven in and tidy up the length, then wash it. At last. I should get on with the fan reed but I am thinking of weaving a scarf on the Meyer which should not take long.

I have sorted out the yarn for the double weave Biederwand.

The yellow and bright brown beside are one cloth and the rest is the other. I have only shown one of each colour. There are loads of other bobbins and cones of yarn ready for use. This is a major project. Hence the feeling that I would like to weave a scarf, akin to fancying a box of mint chocolates.

About Me

I am weaver and - -. I dye my yarns with acid dyes, I paint my warps, put fabric collages and stencils on my weaving. I have three looms, a 12 inch wide, 12 shaft Meyer for demos and courses, a 30 inch Louet Kombo which is nominally portable but has a stand, two extra beams and a home-made device containing a fan reed. And last a 32 shaft Louet Megado which is computer controlled, has a sectional warp and a second warp beam and I am the proud owner of an AVL warping wheel which I love to bits and started by drilling holes in. I inserted a device for putting a cross in. I have just acquired an inkle loom and had a lesson from an expert so I can watch TV and weave at the same time. I am interested in weaving with silk mostly 60/2 although I do quite a bit with 90/2 silk. I also count myself as a bookbinder with a special interest in Coptic binding.
