1  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Completed Projects / Re: Rider Prider Scarf- With TUTORIAL! on: August 07, 2012 08:01:01 AM
Sweet! Thanks again for the tute.

Now, the last time I did some weaving was in kindergarten, and it looked a bit different from yours. You could not see the Warps at all anymore.
So what do you do different?
Is it just that you use the same yarn (or the same thickness of yarn) for Warps and Whefts? Do you just not comb it down to press the Whefts together and cover up the Warps? Or are the Warps on your frame closer together than on the kindergarten wooden frames?

Your scarf looks so nice and light and fluffy!

Weave along would be nice! I have fancied trying to weave for a while now, but no money to buy a loom. So a handmade loom like in your tute would be great!
Thanks for the tute btw  Smiley

Oh that sounds fantastic! I so want to make this! Thanks for sharing - and thanks for reviving, too, haha!

There is one thing that concerns me tho: unlike in France here in Scotland it is still freezing cold, so i wouldn't really get it up to  a high enough temperature for the initial fermentation. Instead of using dried flowers (or pick the older ones in summer), could I just pick, clean and then freeze the flowers? Utnil it is warm enough here - which is soon I hope, getting sick of that weather. Any ideas?

also, for your ferment in the open bottles, do you cap them with anything to keep the dirt/flies/... out?

Oh I am so excited now. told the BF already and he just shrugged. grmgrmlll ... men... he'll be dragged out for a long weekend through the fields tomorrow, haha!

Hi All,

sorry it took me so long to put up some pics, my brother is here for a visit with his 6-year-old, so I'm slightly busy!

Thanks everybody! I love them all! It was so nice to receive all the little surprises in the post! I loved that!

Thanks to the organizers as well!

hoping to start knitting soon, will post puffy pics!

I got a mix of handdyed and bought yarns, gotta skein them and post them. altho I'd be quite tempted to dye some more ... I'll see. I just moved house, and there are still things in boxes, but I think I know where my dyeing stuff is packed away. But then I wanted to try to send early cause all my partners are overseas so they don't have to wait too long!
