On Wednesday, which was the last day of my Easter vacation, I decided to warp the loom. I had two skeins of sock yarn that I'd bought years ago, back before I knew what sort of socks I enjoy knitting. The colours coordinate quite well, so I decided to use one ball for the warp and one for the weft.
I love warping the loom. I love the curve of the yarn as it twists away from the heddle and toward the warping peg.
I love watching the way the colours line up - no pooling, this isn't a sock!
I love the fiddly pulling through of alternate threads.
I love tensioning the knots that hold the warp in place on the cloth bar.
And I love the look of a fat, loaded shuttle, ready for weaving.
