Trying New Things

I’ve been trying new weaving patterns and experiments lately. There are an infinite number of patterns to try and the list just keeps growing and growing.

The first was a spaced and crammed point twill pattern using hand spun yarn, a light turquoise warp and orange/yellow/red weft.

 

 

I think I’ll make it into a cowl, it’s very soft.

The next technique I tried was spacing the warp out. I used a fine commercial tartan yarn at 30 threads per inch, then a 1″ gap and another 30 threads, etc… I was really pleased with the results.

Lastly, I tried Huck lace for a table runner in 8/2 cotton at 16 threads per inch. My test was in grey then the final in gold, for a client.

I’m currently warping another 16/2, 30 threads per inch project, this time deflected double weave where you have 2 or more separate layers (depending on the number of shafts on your loom) intertwined.

Weaving has an infinite number of possibilities and never gets boring!
