i wove something

October 9, 2011

it’s just a sampler, and it’s pretty wonky.
but it’ll make a nice mini-runner for my writing desk.

i have to say that weaving is pretty intriguing.
it’s not as intuitive as knitting is for me
but it still accesses that . . . thing
that creative part of me that needs to get out.
weaving feels like a lot more work than knitting ever has,
but the finished product was definitely worth the effort.

maybe i’ll get a loom, since,
you know,
i have all this time on my hands.

    Nice! What’s the fiber?

  3. carmel Says:

    I love it!! And I think Mo does too 🙂
    Glad you decided to keep blogging because everyone loves you and you are inspiring for all knitters 🙂

  4. Yes, yes, yes! Get a loom. Joe… errr, Elise got me the Cricket for Mother’s day (from Woven Art). Now I’m asking for a bigger rigid heddle for Christmas. Love the look of woven fabric, and I *love* how this piece turned out.

    I love the slight contrast in the two colors. I wish I could weave!

    Love it! I’ve weaved once too. It was awkward to move that way, but really neat to finish something in three hours. And it definitely did fill the “create” need. I should try it again.

    That’s some beautiful fabric!

    If you get a loom, you could weave all sorts of handspun yarns that you might make on your wheel.

    Yup, a loom is going to show up – when I first thought about getting one, next thing I knew I had 5 and 3 of them were free.

    weaving can become an addiction like crack cocaine. I started out with an ashford rigid heddle loom, then got a floor loom because I wanted to weave a tartan…then a triagle loom.. it is out of control….but a huge stash buster.

  11. So what kind of loom did you use?
    ps. we miss you in pittsburgh 🙂

    The colors are so Mo that he needs one in his size, for those “Sunday-Go-To-Grandmom’s” special occasions. You know, those occasions when he’s trying to impress her into giving him the hambone, or a turkey drumstick, or finding some other way though his stomach to his heart.

    (Keep trying Mo! You know she loves you when she gives Steve a big bag of leftovers for himself — and a slightly smaller bag for you!)

    Great to have you in East Lansing and excited that you are getting into the wonderful world of weaving
