Woven throw #2 is finished...


I finished weaving this throw yesterday morning, hemstitched the ends when I got home from work last night, and wet finished it this morning. The finished size is 73" x 22". Harrisville Designs' New England Shetland throughout.

I hung it over a clothes line to dry and when I took it down noticed that it dried with a pucker on both edges where it hung over the line. Happily, I was able to use the steam iron to remove the puckers. Yay!

I think I did a little better on this one. Learned a few things from the first throw. Just little things, but they add up don't they?

Amazing how quickly the actual weaving goes once the loom is warped. These plaids--any pattern with horizontal milestones I would imagine--really seem to speed along. How enjoyable it is to have a few minutes--5 or 10--to sit and weave a block or two of color.

My next weaving project is going to use some of my own handspun. Exciting.

  1. That is really lovely! And hooray for horizontal milestones. They're kind of like entrelac squares; you just want to see the next one, and the next, and the next!
