32″ Kromski Harp Rigid Heddle Loom; Unbeweavably awesome

Although I’m new to this craft, I really love weaving!

Warping my project: I had to toss this since I used the wrong heddle


Of course, I’m still making mistakes but that’s part of the process. See above picture. For example, a few days ago I used the wrong heddle (10-dent) to weave worsted cotton yarn. That did not go well at all since the fiber kept sticking into the heddle slots. I ended up tossing the entire project. I spent over an hour warping that project, and while I could have kept the fiber to stuff amigurumi I simply tossed it all in the trash.

The very next day, I corrected my error and used the same fiber, but this time with a 7.5-dent heddle. I successfully warped my loom without any issue!

Warping the loom, can at times, feel like the longest part of the journey.

I don’t look at it negatively since it’s all part of the process, and it’s a necessary step if I want to turn fiber into lovely woven cloth.
