What's on the Loom????

March 13, 2011 to be posted April 22, 2011

As most of you know I have started a Weave Along in the Inkle Group on Ravelry! You have seen the baby blue, forest green and teal piece...now on to the next one.

This is done in espresso brown, ecru and copper mist #10 mercerized cotton crochet thread.  It is 208 warp count per shed, total 416 threads, which means at 6 1/2 in. wide it has 64 threads to the inch.  It is being woven on the Large Gilmore Wave Loom.

It has 148 thread wide pattern area.  I chose a knot work chart from Laverne Waddington's blog and here is how it is coming along.  She only lifted in pairs, but I am lifting 4 threads at a time.  I do this because this thread is so fine and I wanted the pattern to show more prominently, this is also why the lifts are done in the darkest color, espresso, this time.  It made the pattern twice as large as it would have been also.

Here are a couple of pictures.
