Finished This One

The second weaving project is finished. I haven't yet washed it, but I took some pictures anyway.

I was planning for this to be a scarf, but it is a bit wide.  I think it will make a lovely table runner.  There are a couple of oopsies in it but I am thinking I know how to fix those.  So I need to do that before I wash it. Then it will all tighten up evenly  I love the way the pattern developed in this piece. The variegated yarn did a lot of the work.   Adding the two yellow stripes in the warp pattern did some of the work also.  For the weft, I switched back and forth between the variegated and a solid purple. Switching yarns in the weft while weaving adds some work, but it also adds bands of color.  When those bands of color are combined with  the stripes in the warp, you get a lovely plaid.

Now, I need to do some quilt making!  The trick will be deciding how to juggle my time between quilting and weaving.

I can see how this would be addicting, as you watch the colors/design develop as you weave.

I did one in black and white that turned out nice.
