My journey into the world of weaving


Second scarf progress

I have changed the pattern from 223344554433 to 2233445522334455. I also am doing only one pick of tabby after every pattern pick. It is extremely different looking!

Second scarf

I have woven about 10 inches – I need to make huge progress on this during this weekend.

As I am weaving and appreciating the colors and textures of the weft fiber, I am beginning to get excited about the idea of learning to spin and learning how to achieve such color and texture myself! My sister and I are signed up for a Saturday lesson on Jan. 24th at the Portland Fiber Gallery. We will be able to rent spinning wheels, I think, while we are learning and trying to decide what we will do about a wheel!

Decision made, weaving continues

In addition to what I had already tried, I tried weaving a double pick of tabby and then the pattern tabby. The purple really stood out and I’m not sure I wanted that. I liked the subtlety. So I have ended up weaving what I wove before: two picks tabby, one pattern, etc. I wove about 15 inches yesterday and I like it. So onward!
