I attempted to have a try at eccentric weaving, that is creating curves with the weft. 

The first is using starburst colours!



And the second zig zags...

That is really cool - I know others have used it (the word "cool") too, but it's really the first thing that comes to mind when I look at those! Good job!

Ooh, I love them both!  I really can't pick a favorite.  I do love how the fringe looks along the curved part of the first piece.

What kind of loom do you use?

Thank you for your comments!

Nikschaf - It is a very basic tapestry loom -  a simple wooden frame.  I think you could just as easily use a picture frame.

Love this very much. The technique is fabulous and artistic.

I have a scarf just sitting on my homemade loom, and this will inspire me to get back to work.

I love the unevenness of the first one, and the colors remind me of Starbursts! How big are they?

wow! have you done this by hand or on a loom? My friend has been making stuff on a loom and i'm sure he'd be interested in making waves  Cheesy it's very impressive if you made it without one!

Hello

There are done on a simple loom, and are about 15cm wide.  Happy weaving!

I'm so interested in these weavings! I love the way you gradually added in some color like shading.

You did a really nice job on these. I'm especially admiring the selvages - they're so even. I've made little tapestries like these but always had trouble with the selvages. These are beautiful.

Thank you!  I have had a weaving half done on the loom for months now, your comments might just spur me on to finish it!  Smiley
