Update on weaving

I am back to weaving the Wall of Troy scarf. I am hoping to get it done before the new year but we’ll see! I do love my Tools loom. I’m hoping I weave and spin a lot in 2018!

Update: I got the scarf off the loom on Feb. 11, 2018. Am currently twisting fringe!

Always productive onĀ  a day off! I sorted out my spinning on my two wheels. Both are doing well – now. I had to oil them and tweak them but all is fine now.

Weaving the tencel is going well – Wall of Troy pattern. If you look at it too long, you can imagine all sorts of errors. I don’t think there are any and if there are, they are part of the pattern now!

A decade of weaving

I had my first weaving lesson on February 6, 2007.

First project

I then began to weave fast and furiously. Scarves, placemats. bathmats, blankets, napkins, towels, more.

I was organizing all my work sheets. Between 2013 and 2016, I do not have much to show but I feel that is changing. I am about to take two scarves off of the loom and put on another. I am spinning away on my Hitchhiker, some unknown fiber

If anything, my resolution for this year to get back into record keeping. It was fun to look at all my worksheets from the past. Who knows, I may go back and do a pattern again.

The scarf that is going on to the loom is using the black and gold tencel in a Wall of Troy pattern. More on that later.

10 years is a long time – I’m so glad I did find weaving in 2007!
