Tabletweaving Technique: Weft management

This past weekend I ended up doing some tabletweaving in the park during our weekly fighter practice. Someone watched me for a while and then commented that although they’d done tabletweaving before they hadn’t dealt with the weft the same way that I do..so I figured it might be worthwhile to document how I deal with my weft.

I honestly don’t remember where I originally learned about this method. I’ve been using it for the last 9-10 years. This is what I do to keep my band width consistent and to keep my weft from peeking out too much at the edges.

    Hiya,
    I’ve just stumbled onto your blog via Google, and wanted to thank you for the patterns and info you’ve shared.

    One thing – I’m interested in the look if the loom you’re using in the pix, but can’t see enough of it to work out the structure properly. I’m demonstrating at a couple of our county shows this year, and I’d like to find an inexpensive type of loom – possibly to make myself – so I can have several for people to have a go on. I use an inkle myself, but can’t afford to buy half a dozen of them! Could you possibly give me some info about your loom please – it looks small, portable and easy to set up, so would be ideal, especially if it’s one you made yourself.
    Many thanks
    Ann

    Hi Ann,
    The loom in these pictures is my simple board loom. I put up an entry about the loom here: http://research.fibergeek.com/2014/03/04/simple-board-loom/
