I'm super excited to share my first projects!! I just LOVE my new loom! I think weaving shows off art yarn fantasticaly!

This first shawl I'm using some beautiful yarn I fspun!  It's tailspun kid mohair, rambo locks, xl merino locks, cotswold locks, fabric, bling, bamboo, sari silk, banana silk, and novelty yarn snippets. I started weaving before I even took good yarn shots!!


I used a bamboo/silk blend for the warp..

 I am SOO excited!! I am LOVING the project!!  It's just over 12" wide, 5' long (before fringe) shawl.





I just finished my second shawl and it's my most favorite thing EVER!!  For the weft, I corespun the yarn from a fun mix of textured batts with a soft base of baby alpaca and cashmere. I added some strips of a colorful silk scarf, brightly dyed banana silk, and strands of rainbow sequins.  I autowrapped the yarn in a silver holosparkle thread-
Yarn:

I used an organic cotton yarn in chocolate for the warp.

I wove it on my Ashford Knitters Loom.  It's 18 inches wide and just over 6ft w/o fringe and just about 8ft with fringe. I LOVE LOVE how it turned out! I have 2 skeins left, so I'm going to make a scarf.  Rewarping the loom today for another shawl this size! I just LOVE weaving!!

On Loom Texture-


Finished project!

i dont know why i havent woven anything yet with my handspun yarn... im sure its blasphemy to be a spinner and own a loom and not weave youre own scarf Tongue. i suppose i just never spun enough of any one yarn to do an entire scarf....i think ill fix that soon...
