Swatch Filatura Di Crosa Felz yarn

I have been weaving squares out of the purple cascade yarns 128. It is so easy to work with and gives a nice weave on my square loom. I decided to take a break and tray swatch of a different yarn. This swatch is from Filatura Di Crossa Fancy Felz. It is 46 percent Acrylic, 20 percent wool, 24 percent mohair and 1 percent Polyamide. This is a really fuzzy yarn. I had a some misgivings about it... But I love how the swatch turned out. I think on loom with half inch spacing this yarn would be fine. My spacing is 3/8 and it was a little tight but doable. Having a light background under the loom helped a lot it made it easier to see the yarn.

Back to weaving

It's been a long time.. But I have been busy playing on my looms. This one is almost done      

Weaving For Relaxation

With all of the nasty viruses going around, weaving can be a great source of relaxation.  Whether you are doing rigid heddle weaving, continuous strand weaving or floor loom weaving.   It is a great way to express yourself and escape. Our craft can join and connect people in a common interest.   The sense of community that comes from sharing weaving can bridge a great many differences .Working with ones hands can bring great joy.    The joy and community are also elements of life that promote health.   I try to spend some time every day on my craft.   Sometimes it is weaving, sometimes it is spinning yarn and most recently I am learning to sew. (Oh the ideas for the fabric)

Finally finishing my shawl

I must confess I have had this shawl on my Triloom for some time... Now I am in the home from of finishing. I am trying to decide on a yarn for the border. I saw my Triloom teacher today. She does incredible stuff with a Triloom...I would love to be as talented as she is.
