Not so WIP anymore – Part 2

12 02 2009

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:

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!

That looks like it was a lot of fun. I’d like to play with weaving a bit but I just don’t have the time at the moment.

Ooo – I can’t wait to see how your sock yarn works on a loom!

Your sample is very cool.
