Blanket Weaving

 

 

Sley

After the heddles are threaded, it is time to sley the reed…

.

 

tie

…and next the warp ends are tied to the front apron…cat is very helpful as usual.

.

.

spread

A few wefts are thrown to spread the warp…

.

.

weave

…then the “real” weaving begins!

.

.

ride

Cat enjoyed a few throws of the boat shuttle, but got dizzy.

Blanket

It only took about an hour and a half to do the actual weaving on this nice little baby blanket due to the short warp, thick yarns and plain weave!

The kit for the Monte Cristo Baby Blanket is from Jane Stafford Textiles. Click here for her website.

  1. I just love reading these stories. They show
    Such an unique perception!! Many hugs and
    much applause to the story teller

  2. The blanket sure looks warm and soft! Constance should be proud of her work…and the cat too! Not many woodens get to weave. Very nice work!

  3. No one can weave a story like you…this story is so sweet…this baby blanket looks like the kind that becomes the favorite blanket from baby to toddler and beyond…it might be fun to copy this story along with the blanket so the little one can see how cat and Constance made it.

  4. The whole process of warping the loom is simply amazing to me..and then to read that you turned out the blanket in an hour and half of weaving…. dumbfounding! Love the little cat “helping” out!!
