Off of the Loom

Sunday I finished weaving the throw in the morning, tied the fringe and washed it to full the wool.  I threw it over the empty loom to dry.  When I arrived in Rowe yesterday I immediately took it out to the garden to take a couple of photographs.  I’m only sorry you can’t feel how lovely this is.  There is nothing like wool.  I love the color play and it truly was a great experiment in color.

I learned a lot in this project – there were problems I had to figure out myself.  Those are the solutions you remember, they may not have been the best solutions but the finished project worked and I will do things differently the next time I warp.

It’s getting to the point now where I have so many things I want to weave I don’t know what to do next.  I think I will do another overshot project, maybe with mixed fibers this time.  Who knows, maybe I’ll be learning about a whole new set of problems.

  1. It is gorgeous! And I just want you to know you are inspiring us, my daughter and me…we inherited a beautiful Swedish floor loom with all you need to weave and we are just learning. My daughter wove her first rag runner and we are going to warp the loom for the second time. She wants to someday make a wool throw…Yours is beautiful…love all the colors!
