My journey into the world of weaving

Placemats are completed!


Today, I hemmed and ironed the placemats. Also snipped little loose ends off.

I have almost a matching set of 7! They are all about 18 inches in length and 12.75 inches in width.


There is one placemat which is 14.5 in length. That can be a mini table runner!

This is the last set for the year I am fairly certain. And definitely with this fiber although I had no problem with the dark color so I could do something with that for a warp. But the lint!

Next project needs to be threaded and sleyed. I think it will be a set of wall hangings!

On a side note, I was at a gathering of folks yesterday in celebration of my father’s 90th. I had planned to bring my rental spinning wheel to return to Melodi who was going to be at the party. We brought out the wheel and some fiber. Both my sister and I spun a little. What I was amazed about was that once I got spinning, I totally tuned out the crowd! I wasn’t nervous but just really into sharing this experience. And people were interested! One little boy said he wanted to spin! cool, very cool.

  1. Conratulations on the spinning accomplishment!

    By the way, I have a set of 7 placemats as well. I was going for 8 but the warp was just not quite long enough. Doh!

  2. Well, I have a set of zero placemats. 🙂 I haven’t touched my loom since we moved.

    Spinning in public is a lot of fun and a real conversation starter!

  3. Thank you both for your comments – you always make me feel better and somehow more accomplished!
