Knot tying tool

karen g's picture

I have a weaving friend with a hand tremor. Tying on a warp has gotten harder. Does anybody have a suggestion for a tool that would make knot tying easier?

knot tying

If you're talking about tying the warp on the tie on rod, changing to lacing on may help. If you are looking at tying on a new warp to an old; individual knots;there are knot tying tools available from commercial loom suppliers. They are expensive ($300) and the dexterity needed to position the threads in the tool may be more difficult than the knot itself. Perhaps she could trade favors with someone, or hire a teenager?
