PROGRESS REPORT 4
A L I S A This is the yarn I spun from the rolags I made on my blending board. It was fun to spin because of the different fibres I used. I had so much fun with it, I can't wait to use the board more! I'm not sure what I'm going to make out of them, perhaps I'll use them in my weavings... J E N N E Continued experiments on the loom. I started with using the warp yarns as the weft and then could not help but grab any yarn /thread /string /wool /piece of fabric within arm's reach to try out…

Weaving How To: Keep Your Sides Straight — Hello Hydrangea
How to Weave Straight Edges Like a Pro Hi friends! I often get students who are frustrated by this, and even though I cover it in my beginning weaving video class, I decided to publish a public tutorial as well. The secret is 3 words: BUBBLE , STRUM and BEAT . Do you have issues keeping your

I think I like best the monochrome version, where the design resulting from the contrast between plain weave and the little grapes is not so obvious. The diameter of the stick goes according to the thickness of the weft - just like knitting. Normally the stick is made of metal, but at that moment I…
Geeking Out: The Heddle Rod - Yarnworker - Know-how for the rigid heddle loom
A weaver recently e-mailed me to ask why use a heddle rod in the Spa Set Pattern mat instead of two pick-up sticks? The quick answer is that in this particular pattern, if you placed two pick-up sticks they would interfere with one another. This isn’t the case with all pick-up patterns that require two sticks, ...

Geeking Out: Packing Material - Yarnworker - Know-how for the rigid heddle loom
I try not to be an opinionated weaver, as there are many ways to get similar results. In weaving, as in life, “it depends” is a totally legit answer. I’m not sure why packing paper has been on my mind, but it has. I questioned myself on why I prefer paper as a packing material. Self, ... Read moreGeeking Out: Packing Material
eileen-s' Stained Glass Scarf
This was plain weave, warp was one strand of the Rosebud (thin) alternating with one strand of the Medley (thick) which made a interesting texture. I wove it very loosely with Rosebud as the weft....

This project provides all sorts of interesting challenges for new and experienced weavers alike by weaving windowpane with linen, using multiple colors in warp and weft.
