WHINING GAVE WAY TO WARPING

I'd like to say thanks those of you with the great suggestions and for being a sounding board, I appreciate it. Lynn, I'm taking your advice, I'm warping the inkle so when I'm done weaving fabric that's the next loom, then I'll warp the RH and that will be the next project. If I keep that up then I will have a project on the go with no lapse or down-confused time for whining.

This is my new warp for the RH, I'm going to weave fabric, with the intentions of making another tissue cover and maybe a summer bag, and my inkle for some straps with this same yarn. It should be fun to try and weave on it with 4 ply yarn. Easy tabby, simple and colorful, I want to play with some hand manipulated weaves towards the end.
And because I now know how - a close up.

I don't know why blogger uploaded this one sideways, but more practice on the Structo. I love this one and also enjoy the concentration I have to put into weave on it. I've also learned that I don't need to beat hard, a light tap and the weft is in place. After this sample I want to re-threadle the yarn and weave some other pattern getting some mug rugs done. Has anyone put cork backing on rug mugs? I'd like any opinions on trying that out.

I really like those colors! I can't believe how fast you are. I'm still working on getting my loom warped.

I love the texture of those yarns! I'll be curious what you are planning for the hand-manipulated part.

I'm glad you got going again, and I'm also looking forward to seeing your hand-manipulated weaving!

The rigid heddle yarns really sing; beautiful!
