You knew I was going to do this, didn’t you? I spent the weekend in Lawrence, Kansas at The Yarn Barn taking two days of classes on weaving. The plan was that I would take the classes and see if I liked weaving and if so, I would get a loom. And, yes, a loom came home with me.
It required just a little assembly to get the loom attached to the stand and Vince and Speck were happy to do the assembly for me.
For my class project, I chose gold and navy for Vince.
That project is finished except for tying the fringe at the end. There’s another project loaded and I hope to finish it today.
This one is a narrow scarf — about 6″. The only part of weaving that was causing me a problem was getting the side edges nice and consistent so I figured something that was narrow and quick would give me lots of practice on the edges. I used Cascade 220 Superwash for the warp and a sock yarn for the weft.
Wait til you see my next project! 🙂
