Bank holiday

As today is a Bank Holiday it meant I didn't have to work! Yay! I'm not good at Mondays except when the banks are shut.

I spent a lovely afternoon weaving, ah the bliss! I haven't done any weaving for what feels like ages. Remember I said I wanted to make a wall hanging? Well today I finished getting the warp on the loom and started.

I made up a 400 end warp in black, navy and plum Axminster carpet wool. It's a lot more slubby than I expected but it has a fabulous texture. This is the perfect project to try out the technique whose name I can't for the life of me remember! It begins with a 'C' and you can see it below..

I'm rather pleased with how it's going so far. More pics soon.

I hope you're having a great day, whether it's a holiday for you or not.

  1. It looks very cool!! Hopefully seeing your weaving will inspire me to do some of my own!!

    Is it clasped weft??? I'm deliriously tired right now, so I really shouldn't even hazard a guess!!


  2. Thanks Sue, I have in fact finished it now but I haven't decided where to hang it and I've got to take some more pics. I really enjoyed this project. Thanks for the name reminder!
