I am almost done with the first placemat. I am weaving with a rayon cotton linen fiber. The pattern is a huck lace, adapted from a Handwoven.
There were a few knots in the blue warp so as I come across those, I am snipping and mending. That seems to make it go smoothly.
This is a very sticky fiber! Most apparent as the fiber is leaving the bobbin, it gets hung up once in a while. I am winding more loosely and we’ll see if that helps.
What is probably visible are the “different” ends in the warp. I had run out of the lilac linen so I used something at hand. Also visible is the “breakdown” of my master vision of the design. I think I lost count of ends on the left side so the warp colors don’t match the pattern as well as they do on the right.
Unintentional randomness. I don’t want my creativity in a box after all!
I’m on vacation this week so I hope to do lots of spinning and weaving!
