it is off the loom!

April 30, 2013

thank goodness!

weaving-finishing 278

it is not as long as I had planned but sometimes common sense tells you to quit while you are ahead

weaving-finishing 281

the pattern is log cabin with four colours

the white thick and thin yarn looks like ikat

weaving-finishing 286

the twisted fringes will take some time

in 40 years of weaving I’ve never stopped experimenting – never settled down to one technique or style

these yarns were heavier than I generally use,  all commercial yarns and chemical dyes

the weaving was the full width of my loom – 40 inches

it is good to learn something new!

I like fine yarns, handspun, natural dyes and narrower widths

what’s next?

    Good looking blanket! No, it’s never too late to learn something new. Onward.

    This looks like it is going to be soft. Makes me want to curl up and take a nap (with the AC on–at least here). What are your plans for it?

      Kristin – I am teaching a workshop at the Esquimalt Nation’s longhouse (aboriginal peoples) and they ask for a blanket instead of signing a contract (so it is a trade blanket)
      Myra – Susan it is a bit brighter than I am used to, I haven’t washed it yet but it is soft.

      Blandina – thank you, the pattern is the same one I teach my new students. It is easy, effective and has endless variations.
