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.

Weaving Display

The Weaving Divas have an exhibit of our weaving on display in Mount Vernon, Missouri  at  Fiber Daze.  The art league sponsored our show. Even though Fiber Daze is only a few days, the art league will have our exhibit up through October.

Of course I took a photo of 'my' stuff. The small: Theo Moorman pillow, the photo album (Swedish Lace)on the table, and the Woven Shibori kitchen towel hanging above.  

Before my camera gave out, I did get a photo of Rossanna standing by the awesome silk scarf with matching kumihimo necklace she made. Her idea of fun is weaving at 48 or more epi!!!

Of our 14 members we each have 3 pieces on display. A wide variety from towels, runners, scarves,  to a huge shaft-switching rug, a woven felted jacket. And tapestries to get lost in!

Color and Pick-Up Inkle Weaving

Would you believe that the orange band and the bottom turquoise band are the same pattern? 

Well, they are. I have the three center pattern threads on the orange band a very dark brown with metallic while on the bottom turquoise band, I am using two blended threads of turquoise as all the pattern threads. I am having fun changing up the colors while using the same draft.
