1  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Discussion and Questions / warp weighted loom and string heddles on: December 07, 2009 07:28:49 PM
Hi,  I'm really a lurker and hope it's OK to pop in w/questions?  I'm really stuck here and am hoping someone is online and can help.
  I made a warp weighted loom for our church Christmas project.  I bought books, read tons of stuff online, have SOME(read very little) weaving experience and everything I THOUGHT was fine till a bit ago.   I made string heddles for the loom.  Made them on the loom.  Heddle rod against the uprights so I thought the length was OK.  All done and when I tried it out, ALL the warp threads come forward....!   Are the heddles too long?  If so, is there a quick fix?  I spent all day on these and am out of time and what little patience I had left.  Warp is chained and weighted.  I've yet to do a chain spacing on the warp...would that be the problem?  It's like there isn't enough weight on the warp to hold it in place, but I'm using pretty big rocks as weights so....  I used branches with natural forks as supports for the heddle rod....if I make them longer?Huh

Many thanks in advance, Mary <><  
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Newbie question on: January 05, 2009 07:04:24 AM
I finished (YAY!) some felted slippers for a secret sister and am wondering what washing inst to send with them.  I mean, if she washes them in the washer, obviously, they'll shrink more...so, ...?  By hand only?  Also, I put them through the washer once and let them air dry.  They are OK on my 9.5 foot, but she's a 10...will they stretch out some or should I make another pair?
