My journey into the world of weaving

Placemats 2 and 3


I finished #2 and am well into #3. The weaving is easy – one shuttle, a pattern which makes sense to me so consequently I don’t lose my place, and nice colors. I am already planning another set with different colors.

I am still planning my rug as well and decided to order a rug warp fiber for it which I did.

I have spun a bobbin full of the colored fiber and will do another. Then ply the two together. I am getting more consistent and am getting the feel of this. Fingers and foot almost operate independently of thought. It’s really not a thinking skill.

I am going to look at a friend’s traditional Ashford tomorrow and see how that feels. If it feels right, it could be mine!

  1. It has been years since I have used my loom. But, I have the thread for a set of placemats ready to start. Warping is a problem as the loom is in a tight place. I will prevail! Where do you order from? I live in the outback of OK and must do nearly all purchasing by internet.

  2. Hi Carol, thanks for visiting! The fiber I am using for these placemats is actually a rayon-cotton-flax from Paradise Fibers which I won in an auction on Weavolution! Typically, i buy a lot from Halcyon in Maine. I hope you do prevail!
