I really like your color choices!! It is always the most seemingly random color combos that turn out the most amazing fabrics in the end! I remember my first weaving project we mixed a bunch of different random colors and weaving patterns to kind of try everything out to get a feel for weaving and they were some of the most creative and beautiful projects!! The colors really pop!! Great first weave!

Thanks!! This is still one of my favorite things I have ever made! I use it all the time and the colors always make me happy!!  I wish I have more time to weave!! Now that I am in grad school I am so focused on my concentration (computer animation) that I haven't woven anything in nearly a year!! I even lent my loom out to my old high school because it definitely wasn't making the trip to Savannah with me!! I miss it a lot though!!

I haven't been on here in so long!! All of the yarn looks gorgeous! It makes me miss my spinning wheel and loom terribly!!! I still have my drop spindle with me though so maybe I will try to spin something up once exams are over in a few weeks!! I think that I will bring my spindle on my trip this summer.  I am biking across America (http://seewetzbike.wordpress.comSmiley to raise money for Habitat for Humanity with a big group of college kids, it would be great to spread the spinning love to them and across the country, and maybe meet up with some cool spinners on the way!! I mean I am spinning my way across the country by bike so I might as well spin some yarn on the way as well!! Keep up the great work! I will tune in next week for more inspiration and yarn porn!!

Thanks for all the comments!
I go to James Madison University.  There is a textiles concentration but not fashion design.  The concentration is more focused on weaving and silk painting, it doesn't really touch on fashion.

Thanks everyone!! I still use this blanket all the time, I love that it is big enough to cover my whole bed, I basically use it like a bedspread.  The colors always make me happy! I am starting to make a bag using the same color scheme (slightly simplified) and I am really excited about that project, I will post pictures of it when I finish it! Smiley
8  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Completed Projects / Mom's Birthday Blanket on: January 27, 2008 08:55:14 PM
I made this blanket in my weaving class, I gave it to my mom as a present for christmas.  It is plain weave woven using the double weave technique to make a double width fabric.  I made this on my 26" Baby Wolf Loom, and the finished dimensions (before Fulling) was about 48" wide, I can't remember how long, or what the finished dimensions are after fulling it.  It is meant as a small lap blanket for my mom to use durring my lacrosse games.  It is very warm and soft made out of Alpaca and merino, and fulled a bit to make it extra thick and warm.  the colors are my school colors, purple, gold, white, and black, but more muted, it is actually reversable with different color patterns on both sides, but my mom took these pictures and they are only of one side of it.  Each strand of the blanket alternated thickness, the thicker yearn is the alpaca and the thinner yarn is merino.  Double weave was harder then I thought, especially putting the warp on the loom!! Because of how often I change colors in the weft (Each weft shot alternates a different color and a different type of yarn) I realized I had to do something about the edges because they would have made it so that the blanket didn't open, and was more like a woven tube then a blanket, so I fastened a piece of PVC along the edge of my loom where the blanket was supposed to open and wrapped the weft ends around it and then cut them and tied them off as I wove, making the fringe that goes all around the blanket.  It was definitely a labor of love, but I am really happy with how it turned out!  OK enough rambling!!

(The modeling reel has adult content, we had to texture the model nude, and the professor was kinda a stickler for detail.... its nothing terribly vulger just a fairly accurate model of the female body nude)
