This past year I've gone to a school and learned how to weave. Thought I should post a few of the things I've made here  Smiley It's been a really great year! Unfortunately I don't know what any techniques or stuff is called in English..

A pillow made with cotton warp and handspun wool as weft.

Eldblomma. Sometime when I find a suitable fabric to use as back it's going to be a pillow. The best pillow in the world!

Some kitchen towels. Cotton warp and linen weft.

Linen/cotton mix in the warp and linen and linen/cotton in the weft.

Scarf in wool, dyed with acid dye.

I wanted a big shawl I could hide in.. All cotton.

Same technique as 'Eldblomma'. But with dyed locks of wool and handspun wool yarn in the bottom.

Mercerized cotton as warp and wool as weft. Those misshaped figures around the embroidered mushroom is leaves and mushrooms, stenciled on the warp before weaving.

You do beautiful work.  I love the kitchen towels, the striped tote bag and the scarf in particular.  Thanks for sharing and post again before another year is up!

Thanks for all the kind words  Smiley Unfortunately I won't be able to weave for quite a while now.. Not until I buy myself a loom actually. And got place to keep it   Sad I'm going to miss weaving..

I'm going to miss weaving..
You could try card weaving--small, full of possibilities and you can set up almost anywhere.

I really like the striped bags.

You mean weaving with small cards with holes in them which you thread yarn through? I've actually done that, but it's not the same. I've woven with a 'bandgrind' too (don't know what that's called in english..). But I find that it is an entirely different thing to have a big loom and be able to weave towels and fabric.. But I need to find out what those triangular looms that people seem to weave shawls on are. If I've understood correctly they're just like three bits of wood and then nails on or something. My dad should be able to make on of those  Smiley
