My journey into the world of weaving

Competed napkins/towels and new project!

The napkins or towels are done! some are even packaged up into Christmas presents!


The next project is on the loom: using handspun for both weft and warp. My husband helped with the pattern! If I could sit down for an extended amount of time, I could get it done pretty quickly!


Happy Holidays to all!

Second scarf, new projects

I am about half way with the second scarf and I am a lot happier with it. I think the comments from Peg and Humblebumble helped. I was too close to the project so I gave myself a few days away from the weaving. When I returned and began weaving again, I liked what I saw up close too!

I used the gift certificate yesterday at A Loom with a View and purchased this yarn:

It is 3/2 pearl cotton and I am going to make my first rug! I’m thinking of using as well the Peace Fleece mushroom yarn. Here they all are together:

I’m thinking of taking this on as my next project instead of what I had planned which was still in the planning stages, something with a huck weave. So stay tuned for that.

Meanwhile, I am definitely looking forward to my first spinning lesson next Saturday at the Portland Fiber Gallery!

Finishes, new projects, etc

I finished table runner number one. It came out all right – much smaller. Measurements are 24″ in width; 46″ in length.
On the loom, I am just about to hemstitch bath mat number one.
And I bought yarn for the next projects: two scarves!
Plus, my husband made a raddle for the Dorothy so she is getting more and more ready for weaving!
