It’s a Wrap

It’s a wrap or a shawl, whatever you want to call it, I’m weaving it.  This is a merino/silk blend woven on a Schacht rigid heddle loom.  I used the Brook Bouquet pattern on the ends and plain weave for the body.  IMG_3133IMG_3134The next shawl was woven with Yarn Bee Soft Secret in spring colors that my mom picked. IMG_3137Tapestry weaving has been on the small scale lately.  I used my Hokett loom for these miniature hangings.  I added turquoise beads on the blue weaving.IMG_3139 The kids at the after school knitting class tried out my small looms.  They had a good time playing with different yarns and colors.  Here’s one of the kits I made.  The craft stick worked well for weaving but I couldn’t make the hole for the yarn any bigger without splitting the wood.  I devised a threader from 20 gauge wire and a macrame bead.  It works!IMG_3129See ya,
