My journey into the world of weaving

New scarves begun

Leave a comment

I have just finished beaming the warp for the new scarves. I am nervous. This fiber is a little stretchy and is not as strong as I thought. I have beamed consistently but gently. I am pretty sure the tension is equal.

I will weave just as gently. A welcome relief, actually, after the rug! That took a lot out of me. The scarves will be a nice little interlude. Beaming the 5 yards at 6 inches wide did not take long.

I am going to do a twill pattern. And use my homespun as weft! This project shouldn’t take too long. Then I will weave another set of placemats and after that I am thinking of weaving some cloth for a garment!
