We decided that we needed a trip to the Florida panhandle to visit Nana. A year ago she and I had talked about a shawl. She wanted someone to knit or crochet her a shawl. I started one and then it became a UFO/albatross. Knowing that I needed a birthday present for Nana - and that I had never finished that shawl - I decided to see if I could find a pattern for a woven one.
I found ponchos, shrugs, ruanas and many other woven things, but no shawl. I did find a pattern for a knitted shawl though, and it inspired me.
One of the great things about my Saori loom is the ability to take off your "inside set" and warp without interrupting the work in progress. I had a plain black warp on my spare set, ready to hang on the loom and weave.
The current project was removed and stored. The black warp was placed on the loom and I wove some fabric using a lovely yarn that changes color in a delightful blend. A long piece of cloth was finally woven and cut off the loom. I put the other project back on the loom. The new fabric went to the cutting table to 'become.'
Here is the result.
