I have almost finished my first weaving. This one started with a crochet background and then filled in with different stitches. It still needs some tweaking. I am not sure I like the fringe and I think it needs another row of white stitches. It also needs it’s permanent hanger. I enjoyed crocheting with my art yarn I spun. It added some extra texture that I liked. The crochet went fast and I still got the fun of weaving after. It is something I would do again 🙂
My next project is using a picture frame for a loom. I have warped it by wrapping the warp threads over and under the edge of the frame similar to this:
This is my inspiration!
Of course as usual, when I went to assemble all my supplies there was one yarn I did not have! True to my commitment to only using what I have I needed to make some chunky yarn. I found some I had spun and then plied it for a chunkier version…it has potential for the fringe.
Or I might use this chunky white that I spun on my electric spinner…
Speaking of the electric spinner…
It has been YEARS!!!! since I used it. I bought it when my left knee was really bad before the knee replacement. I was doing a lot of spinning then and thought this would help. I found that even though it helped my knee I missed the rhythm of using hands and feet together. But yesterday I needed to spin some yarn up quick and did not have another wheel at the studio. It worked PERFECT!!!! I didn’t even miss not using my feet.
I now have all supplies ready and off I go to get this project underway….stay tuned!
