Ok, so I couldn’t wait any longer for winter – I needed to feel the fibers across my weaving loom and in my fingers now! Yes, it is nearly 100 degrees outside, but I’m thinking of that perfect scarf for the brisk cold winds that will come along about December… When I look back on this, I will think of summer – the colors just look RIPE!
Like all my loom weaving, this was done without wool or animal fibers of any kind. Since I am allergic, I make the best of it and create items for others who itch and sneeze at the thought of mohair, wool, alpaca and such. Also, I don’t use weaving patterns – I like the casual appearance of not having all the colors in the exact same proportions.
This weaving was done from some fun colors of Tahki’s Cotton Classic and Debbie Bliss’s Cotton DK, as well as some other little pieces I had around – that is the warp. The great tweed multi yarn that ties it all together is from Mango Moon and unfortunately, I don’t remember the name of it. Label was lost long ago…
This last pictures is actually at the beginning of the weaving. You can still see where I have tied the warp onto the bar at the beginning of the project.
Thoughts to share? Let me know what you think! I’d love to hear your weaving stories!
