Pick-Up Bandweaving Program

We had an excellent program by Barbara Z. on Norwegian Pick-Up Bandweaving at the Cabool weaving meeting.  Lots of tips and techniques with two different threading. Her examples were beautiful and she even makes most of her weaving equipment for this technique. Thank You Barbara!!

Inkle Guitar Strap

Well, I went and did it! I wove a guitar strap.

Now I will have to find someone I know who need a pink-brown-ish strap.

I also see that I should have made it wider to fit the hardware better. Always more to learn!!!

70% bamboo 30% cotton

Yum! I found some "Fiber-lady, Makicot" yarn at Fiber Daze in Mount Vernon, MO that I thought would make a great inkle band. What do you think? It says it is 14 wraps per inch and the sett for weaving is 8 epi. Because I didn't have to change colors, it went on the loom very quickly. There are four threads of black carpet warp on the edges and I am weaving with that same black.

Do not know what I will use this for, just enjoying the color play and the relaxing weaving.
