I have changed the pattern from 223344554433 to 2233445522334455. I also am doing only one pick of tabby after every pattern pick. It is extremely different looking!
I have woven about 10 inches – I need to make huge progress on this during this weekend.
As I am weaving and appreciating the colors and textures of the weft fiber, I am beginning to get excited about the idea of learning to spin and learning how to achieve such color and texture myself! My sister and I are signed up for a Saturday lesson on Jan. 24th at the Portland Fiber Gallery. We will be able to rent spinning wheels, I think, while we are learning and trying to decide what we will do about a wheel!
