At my last Monday night’s weaving class, I finished my class sampler. I tried out many weaves like tabby, standard twill, basket, broken crow and broken twill, return twill and rose path. I also got to try out different yarns; slubby, tweedy, extra thick and extra thin to see how they behave in the different weaves.
Here you can see one half of the sampler:
And one bit of the other side:
Here are some of my favorite sections:
Return twill on the sides with Rose path in the middle
More broken twill
At the next class we’ll get to work on our own project. I’m planning to make a scarf out of my stash sock yarn. I just have to figure out how much I need and then I’ll be able to figure out how many skeins of sock yarn I need. If there are any weavers reading this, how many skeins of fingering weight yarn would you need for a 10″ x 60″ scarf at about 400yds a skein? I’ll make sure to show you when I decide!
