My journey into the world of weaving

Fiber updates


The placemats are off the loom. They are measured – most are 24 by 13.25. There is one that is a couple of inches longer – I must have been distracted and lost count! I had 19 inches of loom waste in the front and 16 in the back. I cut them apart and need to zig zag the edges before popping them into the washing machine. Then I hem and they will be done.

Next, another set of placemats. Third time is the charm, right? These are in the blues. I did have a lot of this fiber but I am enjoying it. I think I have enough for another set but I will take a break from placemats after these and work on my rug.

I got my rug warp so I will begin preparing the warp soon. I am still considering pattern and fiber for the weft.

Finally, I did some spinning today. I am getting adjusted to the Kiwi. I spun some of the colored merino roving.

  1. Oh, where are the pictures? Would love to see the finished place mats.

  2. Carol, they aren’t really done yet! They need to be washed and hemmed. Pictures will be taken then!
