What are you most proud of? 11/12/13: 7,14,14,14,14,14,14,14,14,14,7 I am working on log cabin weaving without breaking any ends using a warping board. It is a bit challenging. I am doing 12 DL then the final one is a D the next round I do 12 LD then the last one is an L. Each exchange will either be a sold D line or a sold L line. I watched in the video again and look more closely at her notes and the solid in between lines were all D. I am not going to unwarpthis one I have my Excel spread sheet with formulas in them so I can keep track. I figure I will do a lot of the figuring out on the warping board. Deborah Jarchow warns you the warp will be twisted and when I advanced the warp I need to untwist. Deborah Jarchow also suggested put a card board in the back on the down position. This will help with the untwisting. Have not gotten there yet. I had to watch this section many times over and I learned something new each time. Is Log Cabin considered a very basic Shadow Weave? I could not image doing this on my wolf. Glad I have the Cricket to practice on. I used Excel and put in forumlas to figure out how many sets to get. I just wanted the width to be 11-13? and I did that. Width 12.8? by ? Groups Done 7 x 14 x 14 x 14 x 14 x 14 x 14 x 14 x 14 x 14 x 14 X 7 x 12.83333333 10 Sets of 14 14 2 Sets of 7 After Warping the loom and getting it through the heddles. I realized I put 2 dark lines in a row then 2 light lines in a row. I would have rather had dark for the change over. I understand the concept of log cabin and that is the MOST important thing at this point. Next approach will be better. Also the ladies on Facebook in the RH group have been extremely helpful. I have done all my lessons with Advanced RH Weaving and this class is so wonderful. Thanks Deborah.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? When you are at the warping board, make sure your color work is organized there. I did that and I am so happy I did because when I went to dress the loom it was not as complicated as I thought it would be.
