Really? some people don’t like the internet? or at least the technology that it entails. Ah, but what a joy this last month. I have heard from several people since I wrote about these potholders, including the lovely Gretchen Mueller whose potholder was the impetus for this whole project.
There was a lot of thinking through to be done. What yarn? Erica did not say anything about size when I posted to her. I thought 5/2 was used and believed I had some, but no, on inspection, it was 10/2. But I did have a stash of varying amounts of 8/2. Maybe a double strand would work. In fact Gretchen used a 8/4 carpet warp. Sett, go with experience, so I adapted the numbers Erica gave me. Now how to get it on the beam. No way was I going to put the draft from Photoshop into a weave draft. I printed out the PS design and marked it in 7 card sequences for each inch for beaming with my warping wheel, back to front. If you think I came to this as quickly as I wrote it… how I wish!
See previous post for what it looks like today, still a lot of progress to me made before I start thinking about all the problems I should have already solved!
