My journey into the world of weaving

Scarf progress

More than half done on the second scarf. This is very easy weaving! Shall I say almost boring? But no, it is very satisfying. A little problem with the right selvedge but nothing huge, nothing worth taking out!
I got my yarn from Halcyon yesterday. Again, the pink error! They have the wrong color with the wrong number online! So instead of the mauve, I got pink. I am keeping it. I am going to try for a different look – perhaps stripes! May be funky, may be just lovely. I won’t know until I start weaving it! Most likely I’ll start warping this week – may take a while – it’s a long warp of 7 yards!!!!!!!
And I still have the Dorothy project on the back burner. I think this weekend I may squeeze in some time and at least begin to dress the loom!


All bathmats done; new project begun

The mauve and green bathmats are complete. Like the blue, the waffle did not pop out but I love the texture anyway! I was able to fringe twist the mauve; I like it! They shrank about 10 inches in length and a couple in the width so I am glad I made them longer. And I am eager to waffle weave again!
In the meantime, I have dressed the loom for the two scarves. I have done stripes with bamboo and the weft is two different colors of alpaca.
I have finally figured out what to do with Dorothy. I have a warp ready, the loom is as ready as can be, and I am going to thread to get a gamp! I have 4 different threadings and then I will change treadles every 4 inches or so. So we’ll see how that turns out!
