Looming deadlines

For a while now I’ve been wanting to try the waffle weave on my loom, and my sisters soon-to-be born twins are a great excuse to learn how to do it,¬†and so this week I warped up my loom in a waffle weave with multi-colored blue yarn and got to it.
It was a very easy and quick weave with a floating selvedge.

The heddles were set up 1,*2,3,4,3,2,1* with a repeat from *to*, and the foot pedals were set up and used *1,2,3,4,5,4,3,2* and repeated *to*

One of the things I enjoy most about weaving is the fact that I have boat shuttles and it makes weaving so much easier and quicker.

After I had woven enough for two blankets, I still had a few inches of warp left over, so I quickly wove off some plain weave with pink and blue.
