My weaving class was cancelled last night, but I was still able to complete my project. And, even more amazing, I was able to settle on a project in the first place! I chose to weave a light-weight warm weather scarf/wrap. I chose fairly neutral (of course!), warm colors in a cotton/linen blend. The scarf is a bit less soft than I would like, probably due to the linen. I’m hoping that when I wash it will get a bit softer in the dryer.
One thing I really love about weaving is the relatively short amount of time it takes to complete a project. When I compare this to knitting, I am so impressed by the speed! A scarf of this size could take me a couple of weeks to finish (or a few months!) but weaving I was able to finish it in a couple days. I’m sure that people who really know their way around a loom could make this even faster.
My only complaint with weaving is the number it does on my preggo back. I don’t really have a table that is at the right height, so I have to bend over to do the weaving. On the one hand, those muscles must be getting pretty strong. On the other, getting out of bed in the morning, not so great. Anyhow, I suppose its worth it, and I can’t wait for my next assignment!
