Weaving

Eighth weaving project 
I've gotten farther on my new weaving project.  I've kind of gotten into a rhythm with it and it doesn't feel so awkward working with two stick shuttles at once.  The pattern is clearer too, which is making me feel better about my last minute decision to change my weaving plans and do houndstooth.  It's fun watching all the colors appear in the multi colored Aniversario yarn, but the navy kind of grounds it and keeps it from going all clown barf on me.  Clown barf is never a good idea!

One of the things I like most about the weaving is watching how colors combine and play together.  I also love that weaving is friendly to the crazy beautiful hand painted skeins of yarn that are so much fun to buy.  I learned the hard way as a new knitter that those skeins don't always knit up the way I want them to, so I tend to focus on the more tonal or color washed types of hand dyes for knitting.  Weaving means I can buy those crazy skeins and be happy when I use them!

That's really beautiful! I keep envying the finished product of weaving but I'm not good with delayed gratification and don't know if I'd ever have the patience to warp the loom. Thanks for showing your products.

I absolutely agree about the variegated yarns being wonderful for weaving.
KayT, weaving is far more instant gratification than knitting - warping takes a while but the weaving is so fast you can complete a project in much less time than knitting.
