Season 5 Episode 5 - Swedish Lace
It's time for another episode of the School of Weaving that builds on everything we've learned about Huck. Swedish Lace is Huck's cousin. They live on the same side of Lace Street. Swedish Lace units are the same as Huck's but in Swedish Lace we are allowed to repeat those units as many times as we want. Ms. Swedish Lace is a little more lenient :) When we understand how this works, it means we can use Swedish Lace and Huck in one piece....as you will see in our show and tell. Anywhooooooo, I hope you have fun with this one. The possibilities are simply mind boggling.
Things we will learn:
-That Swedish Lace grows out of Huck
-That our A units and B units can be repeated in our threading with the addition of a tie-down thread
-That our A units and B units can be repeated in our treadling with the addition of an extra tabby pick
-That we can use our Mother-of-all-tie-ups and weave it in weft spots, warp spots and lace
-That we can overlay everything we played with from our Huck gamp and our Huck Colour and Weave gamp
-That there just isn’t enough time to weave it all in one lifetime :)
