FO: Clarisse and some weaving pics
Clarisse, finished, since washed (to remove oil) and drying flat. It's softened up a treat
Scottish fibres DK bought at Wonderwool
Warping up the 24" Ashford Rigid Heddle loom. Warp is 4ply merino in black
Weaving in progress - weft is scottish fibres DK above
Close-up of weaving. Originally thought the warp might be too thin, but it's working out fine. Loom is good if a little basic - haven't managed to use it propped on the edge of a table, because I can't get far away enough from the dining table without rearranging everything. So it is a bit back-breaking. But kinda addictive.
Bleeding heart, going bonkers this year... just because it's all doom and gloom here, and I feel I need to cheer things up a bit!
As always, click for a biiger pic. I has a narrow blog! :)
