I’m working on some smaller tapestry pieces. I find it is a good way to try new techniques and color arrangements before starting on a bigger project. It’s like swatching in knitting. I use the Schacht tapestry loom. This is a design from Navajo Weaving Way: The Path from Fleece to Rug. After it was finished, I noticed one section was off one warp thread. Lesson learned: count twice, weave once.
These are not the actual yarns and colors I’ll be using. My good friend and fellow Yarn Babe, Valley, gave me several yarn sample cards to try.
Winter weather is coming our way, so I should be doing some serious spinning and weaving . I’ll show my spinning from Basically Benita’s Dyed in the Wool “Fiber Binder” goodies soon.
