More Weaving

I have had the urge to weave lately.  No big projects are in the works, but I am trying out some patterns on my rigid heddle loom, sampling threads and yarns on my vintage Peacock loom and a little knitted shawl on the side.  I found a pick-up pattern to go along with the Brooks Bouquet pattern.  This is a gift for an aunt in Kentucky.IMG_2812Here is another scarf using 5/2 cotton and 8/2 Pearl cotton in variegated and solid colored yarns.  I am using my vintage Peacock loom.  It is amazing how well this simple little loom weaves.IMG_2813IMG_2814I gave a weaving demonstration at the after-school kids knitting and crochet club.  I set up my Schacht Flip loom for them to weave cotton mug rugs.  It is always fun to watch their faces when they see they can make things.  This was their finished project.  I will cut it apart for mug rugs for their teachers.IMG_2821And I did say I had some knitting to show.  It is a triangle shawl using Ash Hill Alpaca yarn in “Starlight”.  It has some sparkle in it but doesn’t show up in the photo.IMG_2815IMG_2816More to come at My Yellow Swing.

See ya,

    Your work is fantastic! I would like to view the pattern for the scarf to see if it is easy enough for this knitter to attempt. I am currently working on a kerchief but it is just knit and purl. Will you be going to knitting on Monday or Wednesday? Gail

    Wonderful weaving projects! How fun to let the kids weave their own mug rugs. They will cherish them forever. It’s certainly the season for lace. It’s everywhere. Spring must really be here!

  3. Beautiful weaving to show! I have had the bug to weave on my rigid heddle loom…I want to make a new kitchen towel. You have inspired me to get it out and just do it!
    The shawl looks very comforting so far!
