I’ve revived my small loom and have been playing at weaving. This was the first one I made.
I messed around with all sorts of techniques, mixing different yarns for texture.
I found a lovely stick to hang it from. Having done this one I thought I’d try an image. My inspiration came from one of my doodles.
From this I did a sketch.
Here is the end result.
The colour isn’t quite right. The red isn’t that vivid. The edges are very wobbly, but it is only meant to be a learning process. I enjoyed playing with colour in the sky, though it meant there were a lot of ends to sew in.
Finally, here is a weaving my Mormor did, which lives on the wall in our sitting room.
I think I’ve got a way to go to reach her standards, but I’ve definitely inherited her love of colour.
