I had a go at using this Kumihimo plate the other night and found that the instructional pictographs were a bit difficult to understand. As you can see they were a bit daunting. The Kumihimo package came with five strands of synthetic yarn to start you off, and this is the first braid I did. I enjoyed it so much that I pulled 60” of gold ribbon, purple orlec and navy orlec to braid. This is a close up of the braid. Accepting this award means following some rules:1.

I love using my temples and have four of them; a metal Toika that works on weaving 35”-59” wide, perfect for blankets and now it is too wide for any of my current looms! A Leclerc temple that is for weaving 23”- 38” wide warps and is perfect for weaving rugs. I’d like to share my method of using a temple with you just as my friend Susan shared her tips with me to get me going! To find the correct width for my temple, I place the temple upside down against the reed and choose the pinhole that is closest in size as your sleyed warp. I make sure I have about 2” of weaving done before I place the temple on the web. When I move the temple, I move the slider brace back to allow the temple to tent up in the middle and place the tenterhooks in the selvedge about 1/16”from the edge. Lots of weavers complain that the holes made in the selvedges are permanent in the weaving. Weaving Words
