Let me start with saying that I love the way bouclé looks when it is woven. However, It sure is hard to dress the loom with it. I had so many tangles while getting the Ocean towel kit on the loom. Before I even got a foot wound, two threads had snapped. I fixed them right away, but it was so frustrating. While my husband was helping me wind on, he said:
"Know what I would do if I was weaving with bouclé?"
To which I said "Not weave with bouclé?" LOL
"No, I would only use it in the weft!"
Not a bad idea, actually. ;)
I haven't used the boucle in anything but weft so far. One of my local weaving friends just had a nightmare of a time warping with boucle. I have the same kit as you used waiting in the wings.
When I have time to weave it up, I will be using the warping wheel and sectional beam on my David III. Hopefully that will keep it tame.
I have had the warp chained and ready for months, as well as the "Jane's Favorite Tea Towel" kit, and a bunch of others. I didn't want to have to wait to warp a project once the David was naked. LOL.
I did make the warp on my warping mill (one my husband made that is similar to the Harrisville Mill) and I have not had problems in the past. I'd even made The Charlotte Special towel kit and don't remember having issues. I'm just thankful to have Don here to help me wind on because I think it would have been worse if I'd used my trapeze invention! LOL.
It's all a learning experience, right?
