My journey into the world of weaving

It must be a fiber weekend

Leave a comment

I love three day weekends at home! Today I finished weaving the blanket panel, and need to hemstitch it tomorrow. I have learned a lot on this piece. The big thing being how to use a temple and what it does. I didn’t understand before but now I do. I have a feeling I will use it for all my broad pieces. I would have loved it for the rug I did!

I am preparing the warp for the second panel. Before the first goes off, I have to sit down and figure out what I want this second panel to do. Match the first in the pattern being off? Have it be off but in a different way? Or actually try to get it right? Then of course my mother’s suggestion: make two shawls! and save the blanket for another project! Tempting very tempting. I wonder if she was just positioning herself for a shawl! And she should.

I also finished spinning another ball of the alpaca cria. It is going very quickly and nicely.

And thoughts of trying doubleweave are dancing through my head through all of this.
