Weaving Workers at Home, part 2
Hello again, Friends! As we continue to stay home and stay healthy, we will keep up sharing our projects on the blog, to stay in touch and inspire each other to create. Today's projects include lots of weaving, a little knit and crochet, and gardening:
Her son will never be lacking in beautifully handknit sweaters! The latest will be a shawl-collar pullover knit in superwash wool.
With warmer weather here to stay, it was also time for some seedlings to go out to the garden. Grow well, tiny plants!
Sam has finished a long-running project! She started this rug on her 2-treadle high warp loom months ago. It's made of Pendleton selvage with a warp sett at 6 epi. Without a beater, the work was slow-going, but she made a sling to hold a reed, which helped a lot!
Let's all take a moment to admire that intricately carved shed stick, too!
Lois has embarked on an ambitious and meaningful weaving journey. She is working tablet weaving into cloth woven on a floor loom, for a complex structure of layered weaves, worked all at once. You can read about it in more detail on her blog.
During quarantine, packages for the shop are being delivered to my home, which leads to more temptations than I am able to resist! This week, I treated myself to a bit of the new BFL/silk blend from Ashland Bay, after taking photos of it on the front porch and falling in love with its understated luxury. The wee skein turned out so nicely, and I definitely have plans for this fiber in the future.
Thank you for visiting! As always, we love to hear what you are up to. Keep in touch!
