My journey into the world of weaving

Some weaving this weekend


I have woven 24 inches thus far. I was having some tension problems but that seems to be resolved. One of the middle ends broke, but that is old hat too.

Draw in seems to be about 3 inches, under tension. And of course the pattern is off center.

But it is very pretty and weaving with the 2 ply wool is very nice.

Also spinning the white alpaca still. I am on my second bobbin. I plan to ply with the Louet.

I have really slowed down from my first years of weaving. This year has seen a lot of change, many more weekends away from home. And it is summer – always less time to weave.

Once I finish the alpaca, that is going on the Tools to be woven into a shawl.

  1. It seems to me that weaving comes in seasons, as do so many other pursuits in life. It’s great that you get at least a little time at it though.

  2. And I treasure every moment, Leigh!
