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!
