|Broken twill wool fabric|
I am enjoying three very different projects on the 3 looms I use most often. First, on my brand new Julia (8 shaft countermarche) I am working on a broken twill wool fabric that is almost finished. I think it will be a small handbag. It started as a sample, hoping to be a scarf but fabric seems like a better idea because it is very coarse and has little drape.
|Pendleton selvedges rug|
On my Glimakra Standard (8 shaft countermarche) I am weaving 2 rugs using 8/4 cotton warp and Pendleton selvedges for the weft. I am loving the way it looks and can’t wait to get it done and off the loom to see it on the floor. I hope to sell these.
On the Schacht Flip rigid heddle loom, I am weaving new placemats for our home. The yellow yarn is a supplemental warp. I had hoped to do something different with the supplemental warp but the sample came out awful so I regrouped and decided to weave it in over the brown yarn underneath. The supplemental has longer floats than the rest of the placemat. I am using 2 heddles so it’s slow going. The line of 4 weft threads is the cutting line for the 2nd placemat.
