Handwoven Corrections 2002
Sylvia Houghton’s Undulating Overshot for Scarves, page 58
In the November/December 2002 issue, in Sylvia Houghton’s “Undulating Overshot for Scarves,” the first instruction with the threading draft on page 58 should read “Thread from right to left” instead of “from left to right.” Read both the first row in the threading draft and the second row (to e) from right to left.
The thread on shaft 4, at e, is the center thread in the draft. When you reach that center thread, reverse the direction in which you read the draft and read it from left to right (the bottom row first and then the top). You can’t change the direction you are threading the heddles, of course. You will continue in the same direction in which you began.
Blomqvist omitted Blomqvist was inadvertently omitted from the list of suppliers in Handwoven, May/June 2002, as a source for 22/2 cottolin and 16/2 unmercerized cotton in a wide range of colors: Blomqvist/Nordiska Textil-Garner AB, Box 4039, Overlida, Sweden S-512 84; www.clb.se. Weaver’s Potluck caption In Handwoven, May/June 2002,
“Weaver’s Potluck,” page 38, the photo captions should be exchanged: Gudrun Polak wove the sample in the Book of Days; Ann Schaeffer wove the napkin fabric in the Weaver’s Guild of Greater Baltimore’s napkin book.
Spaced-Warp Lace Curtains, page 67
In Jean Hutchison’s “Spaced-Warp Lace Curtains,” March/April 2002, page 67, the heddle count on shaft 2 in Figure 3a should be 328 and on shaft 3 it should be 324. In Figure 3b, the heddle count on both shafts 3 and 4 should be 176.
Barbara Wittenberg’s tubular top, page 39
The layout for Barbara Wittenberg’s tubular top (January/February, 2002, page 39) should show both sleeves closed and the center section open across the bottom edge of the diagram (the right side of the warp on the loom).
Yarn Chart, page 14
Note that the wrong sett range for 60/2 silk is given in the Yarn Chart in the January/February 2002 issue, page 14. The sett range should be 30, 40, 48.
