Most of my scarves and shawls have twisted fringe because I love twisted fringe. I like the way it looks. I like the way it feels when I run my fingers through it. But making good twisted fringe takes practice and a plan.
I have just posted a video on YouTube showing my process.
By all means watch the video, but I will describe the basics here.

I am back to work on my blog after a long hiatus. The first thing I want to do is share some videos with you that I have created. Jane Stafford I am not, and I can promise you these videos are not professional, but I think that they do a pretty good job of showing my process for warping back to front. I also think that even more experienced weavers might benefit from a host of tips that I share in the videos.
Over the past two years of the pandemic, I taught a "next step" Weave a Scarf class on Zoom. The class was intended to be for students who had taken a beginning weaving class and warped a loom before but who might not be super comfortable yet going through the steps for getting their warp on the loom. To prep for the class, I created 5 "refresher" videos to help my students get through the process of setting up their looms at home.
I hope you enjoy the videos. Send me feedback!

I have been happily weaving since my son was born in 1988.
