Thanks to Erica de Ruiter for the inspiration in her book, Weaving on 3 Shafts. This allowed me to create something from a very favorable poker hand.
The cards I drew were as follows: Cotton, 3 shaft structure, black and white, checkerboard, combine colors by winding on a bobbin for weft. I was allowed to drop one card so instead of two colors on one bobbin, I used alternating shuttles of black and white.
Both the black and the white were used in the warp and the weft. The yarns were labeled as 10/2 but the black was slightly finer than the white. The white was sett at 30 epi and the black was sett at 32 epi in the warp. I decided to make 1/2 the warp black dominant and the other 1/2 white dominant. Black dominant was threaded and woven black, white, black - white, black, black - black, black, white. Reverse the color sequence for the white dominant section.
Even though, I have access to a twenty-four and a forty shaft loom, I quite enjoyed the three shaft project. Also I found changing the color sequence in the weft challenging to remember where I was. (I ended up using a stitch counter).
Weaving Poker is one of two challenging projects Not 2 Square Weavers participated in this year. The second project was a brown bag exchange where someone else provides the yarn and you have to come up with a project. Both of these are challenging and help you expand your weaving horizons.
Thank you to Beryl for pointing me in the direction of the Erica de Ruiter book.
