My journey into the world of weaving

New project and a present!


I have begun the new project of placemats. The pattern is the same as the last set. I chose to be more logical in my warp arrangement. The colors should follow the pattern pretty well.


The fiber is the rayon-cotton-linen from Paradise Fibers. There are two colors I am using: “Sherbert” and “Clay”. And everything is the same as the last project: threading, sleying, and treadling. I think it will be interesting to see how these colors handle the pattern. There is one “error” already: the second bout from the left somehow escaped the lease sticks! It beamed all right and I will just be careful when threading.

My husband gave me this for my birthday – it’s a visual history of spinning and weaving in 4 pictures! I love it and it is already hanging up in my weaving room!

  1. Happy Birthday! What a lovely gift. Your husband did good.

  2. What a thoughtful card from your husband, he really understands the whole weaving thing most of us have!
    Can’t wait to see the new placemats….
