I can't recall where my interest to weaving started growing up, but I've been collecting and reading information on it for 2 last years. Finally I decided to make up a step forward and purchased this 4-harness loom last July. I promised myself it would be my last expensive toy I bought!
This scarf was finished with 2 cheap and thick wool yarns of contrast colors with a purpose to practice. It consists of 15 samples of different designs and took me 2 days to finish it. AS you can see somewhere below the middle of the scarf there is a change in the width. I left it in purpose to see how each pattern is effected after washing the finished scarf and what is the percentage of shrinkage.
So, for now this scarf-sample serves as an example and memory of my first weaving experience,
and gave me a good start to move on my next project, and guess what it will be? You are absolutely correct, I want to try to weave something in miniature size! I know, it is a fast transition from real size to mini size, but believe me that was the whole purpose and I don't want to wait more.
I wish the best weekend to all of you!
Happy mining, stitching, polymer claying, building, doodling!
