Little Tapestry Weaving

My new little Hokett loom has been in my hands a lot lately.  I have made some mug rugs using leftover sock yarn.  I love using different colors that wouldn’t normally be used together.  The blending from one yarn color to another just fascinates me.  And it gives me other ideas for larger tapestry weaving.IMG_2697This one was self striping yarn that first made a pair of short socks, then two bottle sweaters and the very last of the yarn made the mug rug.IMG_2698Now I am working on a red and black project with a hatching technique.IMG_2700The sheep tapestry is still on the loom.  I started the next row of heads.IMG_2702Knitting has been slow, but I did get to wear my new bike socks today.IMG_2695The really bright part is inside the shoe.  I’ll have to find some bike sandals to wear.IMG_2696That’s all for now.

See ya,

    That’s an adorable little loom and who doesn’t need a good supply of mug rugs? Those socks are amazing. You certainly won’t lose them!

  2. A mug rug is to weaving what a sock is to knitting! Beautiful, quick and fun to utilize! Nice work!

    These little tapestry rugs are adorable. They remind me the rag rugs my parents made with a large loom.
