I measured out my 120" for the warp for my 24" Knitter's Loom by Ashford and began threading!
Of course, there were a few setbacks out of my control!
The few of the plastic spacers that hold the take-up beams both in front and in the back broke apart in pieces when I put some tension on them while warping! Thankfully, I had emptied my loom bag to make sure I had everything I needed to work before I began and I remembered seeing 4 new ones which is just what I needed to replace the broken ones-two in the front and two in the back!
The warp wound on without further mishap and I was glad the next step was performed sitting down even after my break for lunch. I then tied on all of the yarn to the front 'beam' and was able to begin the weaving.
I was a bit shaky at first but after 4-5 inches it smoothed out.
I even had to repair a warp thread that broke because it was a thin spot in my handspun! (Sock weight Coopworth wool)
I piled a ton of pillows behind me so I was comfortably seated and watched Poirot while a storm raged outside!
So much wind and driving rain! The cats enjoyed my company in front of the fire again-I have been in bed for so long they missed our fireplace room time together!
When I had 10" done, I knew I needed to lay down again!
Yes, the meds are helping but I am pretty pitiful still!
I'm glad I powered through the warping and have this ready to weave now. It should provide some good therapy!
(Thinking of the convalescent homes
and their many handcrafts to heal body and spirit!)
