Draw device with pattern saving lashes
I blogged about the rebuild on my blog at bloominloom.wordpress.com, hope it makes some sense (as usual it is late, I just got home from work and I am tired but very excited!)
This re-build has been stop and go for some time. I have finally got the drawcord warp set up and have a sample piece started to enable me to set up both sets of harnesses and the drawcord warp. The weaving is untidy as I am tying in the pattern saving lashes and fine tuning to try to get as clean a shed as possible. The sample is being woven in scrap tencel as the actual runner will be 16/1 linen for weft (which I don't want to waste), the warp is 16/2 cotton.
The lashes are stored above the second set of pattern harnesses. The seine twine works well for the drawcord warp.
