Double shedding devices are fun!
I don’t have Elena’s fancy lenses here, but decided to take a quick photo with my iPad of the double shedding device weaving. At first, although I was enjoying it, I wasn’t lost in it yet. Then I got lost in it and realized that I will most likely weaving a lot of tapestries with this double shedding device method. The next one will be twill. I might have to whip a new loom out of a box because all my looms are full to do that. But for now I am content to work on this piece. I love the texture!
To recap: I am using two shedding devices. The top one is connected to double warp threads; the bottom shedding device is connected to every other warp thread. The sett is 14 ends per inch. Therefore, the top shedding device addresses a 7 epi warp while the bottom addresses a 14 epi warp. I am not used to weaving a such a fine sett, but am getting used to it. I am using worsted weight yarn for the double warps and my hand-painted silk for the single warps.
I promise to try to finish this piece in a timely fashion and publish photos as I go along!
