Small shawl with lace border

Finally got around to blocking this. I must confess I wore it a bit before blocking. It NEVER fails to amaze me how much better things look once they are blocked.

This was about a 4.5 foot setting on my Triloom. The weaving took very little time and was tons of fun. The knitting took a bit longer than I expected...but was quick for me. This is a great way to use up some bulky yarn you love but don't have enough for a full size shawl. I used worsted weight for the border but DK would work... Possibly even sock.

Back to weaving

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

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.    

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)
