I did more weaving today than knitting. Last night I got a five-yard, yellow warp for placemats wound on the warp beam, and tied unto the front apron. I also looped together all of the yellow, plastic bag loops that I had already cut into long 'strings' to use as weft. Today I have woven two placemats,
The first placemat has a flaw in the middle. One warp thread didn't get tied on to the old warp well, and came loose while I was winding on. The fix I tried while winding on didn't work either, so there are two threads side by side that are threaded on the same harness - i.e. going over and under the same weft threads. Before starting the second mat, I put the loose thread through the empty space in the reed and the empty heddle in the back harness, then hung it over the back beam with a weight. I don't know why I didn't do it that way before I started the first one.
I also did some knitting on a shawl that I started a couple of months ago. I'm not sure why I keep putting it aside.
