My journey into the world of weaving

Weekend of weaving

Leave a comment

I am well into the weaving of the table runner.
I love working with the different colors. I began rather rigidly – each stripe an inch or so wide but then I just let loose at times. Some stripes are wider, some narrower.
I am following the color pattern: browns to reds to reds to brown.
The pattern is an undulating twill.
I had some readjustments this weekend: some weaving, wrong colors, and selvedge.
But nothing huge. And I learned a lot. I’m learning about throwing the shuttle, beating, rhythm, and weaving.
I am also learning how to change colors with the least impact on design and pattern.
And again, I note when I am tired it does affect my weaving.
