On Weaving

I love it. Setting up the loom is a lot of work...but I love it. :)

I finished my first weaving project. It's a scarf for Maxim.

  • Specs: 10 dent heddle, simple weave. 58 ends. What other info do people give in weaving projects? I'm new to this and don't understand it all yet!!!!

  • Warp: Silky Wool
  • Weft: Creatively Dyed Steele in Topdog colorway
  • Recipient: Max, my love. :)

I also finished that soaker from my last entry:

  • Yarn: Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Worsted...Hand dyed by me!
  • Modifications: None
  • Verdict: Cute and easy! I'm definitely going to make another one because I really only used half a ball to do this one. You can never have too many soakers!

AND that obnoxious potholder:

  • Yarn: Sugar 'n Cream (stash yarn!)
  • Verdict: Love!

Well, that's all for now. More to come soonish. :)

I love the obnoxious potholder, and the weaving is so pretty! Two crafts I have know idea how to do but this makes me want to learn :)

Crocheting is super easy and fast once you know how to make the stitches...and weaving is pretty easy once you get the yarn set up on the loom. At this point, just setting up the loom takes me about two hours! I hope that in time I get faster with it!
