Still Weaving

I am still on a weaving kick.  I keep weaving fabric for a vest or jacket, but when I take the fabric off the loom, it is so hard to put the scissors to it.  Like this one.  It is all cotton, mostly plain weave, but I also did some clasped weft sections.  I ordered a book called Beginner Saori Sewing, so hopefully, that will inspire me to make things from my hand weaving.  I mean, how many shawls does one really need ?  (Maybe just one more!)img_3102img_3104I also finished a scarf from my hand spun yarn.  Actually, I had knitted this yarn into a cowl, but the colors just washed out in the knitting, and I hated it.  So, I ripped out the knitting and put it on my Ashford SampleIt loom. I am very pleased with it now.img_3106img_3107Happy weaving!

See ya,
