I’ve been studying weaving since 2005. I often think that I spend more time talking about weaving, collecting yarn, and buying weaving tools than weaving. (Just love all that beautiful wooden esoteric stuff that goes with weaving!)
For the last 3-4 months, I’ve actually been weaving! It’s a miracle. I have a full-time job so weaving time is limited, but I’ve still managed to get some things off the loom.
Some images from a course I took on doing deflected double weave. Mouse over each image for a caption. Notice that the pre-washing image has much more rigid lines and that the other 3 post-washing images have softer and more rounded lines.
Also, recently completed a shawl using some tencel I dyed last year. Someone said the browns and greens look like a forest floor so I’ve title this piece “Forest Floor”. I wanted the leaf-shaped twill to evoke that idea. Unfortunately, I chose “taupe” for the weft– washing out the greens and browns of the dyed tencel. My original choice had been “avocado”, but when I put that next to the dyed warp, it seemed way too green.
So, yeah, me! Finally weaving more than talking about weaving. A very exciting way to start 2017.
