Weaving has been taking up more of my time. I have started teaching some rigid heddle classes at Gosh Yarn It. I really enjoy using rigid heddle looms and often have both my 10 inch Cricket and my 16 inch Harp going at the same time. So, to do some catch up. The hounds tooth pattern was used for the first Weaving Class.
I did mine in worsted wt, the black is commercial the variegated is handspun using an 8 dent heddle and very light beat. It washed up to be very soft and drapy.
I had some bulky handspun again from Spunky Eclectic, "Eating Maine" Swaledale. I wove some fabric with 3 ply Indian Warp I had purchased from the Mannings for a little seat cushion. Something soft between me and metal folding chairs!
Off the loom and washed:
The cushion is all made but no photo yet!
Finally got a picture of my spa cloth experiment - five spa cloths each a little different:
Oh, here is the first scarf project with the yarn that came with my Cricket!:
More weaving to come!
