If the loom is a-rockin’…

Thursday, June 20th, 2013 | blah blah blah, FO's, scarf, start to finish, weaving | No Comments

I’ve been doing some major work on the loom as of late.

Loom assembled! Note: I realize that anchoring my loom with my feet is not the best idea.

I kicked butt on that itchy Nature Spun included in with the loom, and lickety split I was done.

My first woven scarf.

Much like the first “skein” of yarn I spun on a drop spindle, I hate itI love it…I’m incredibly critical of the workmanship but feel attached to it for sentimental reasons.

As soon as I had the fringe tied off and the ends woven in, I immediately started warping for the next project. I had some bright cotton yarn that David had given me before he moved to the Bay area. It’s been sitting in a bag screaming to be something. I am much more pleased with this attempt at weaving. It helps that I love the bright colors.

Appealing to my love of 80’s dayglo.

I’m definitely a “starter”…

Baah! in Obsidian, Burmese Ruby and Grey Onyx.

It was a busy weekend. Luckily, with no Friday Night Knitting for me this week, I had the extra time to sit and think…analyze…and play Animal Crossing.

I had caked up that Baah! La Jolla yarn in preparation for the LA Yarn Crawl 2013 shawl (better late than never). I decided to cast that bad boy on…I don’t have much done, but it is looking good so far!

I also took some time on Sunday to sketch. Drawing is something I love to talk myself out of. I don’t think it is something I am terribly good at. During my time on the path of art in college, I preferred my sculpture classes to any kind of drawing class. I would rather end up with art I could touch.

My hand…ugh.

After sketching for awhile, I got the bug in my bonnet to put my Cricket loom together. So I did.

The loom…pre-build.

Looks like I am back on the multiple project bandwagon!
