Weaving

 I recently wove a table runner for my sister -


The brown warp was a commercial yarn (Harrisville Design Shetland in the colour way Teak), and the natural was some hand spun yarn from one of the raw fleeces I was given (the person who gives me the fleece is a friend of my sister). The style of weaving is Overshot - a two step weave, with two colours/shuttles.

With the warp I experimented with different treadling patterns to create different designs. More details can be found on my Ravelry page.


This was the first time that I wove a whole project in overshot, and I can't wait to try it again.


The overshot sampler project was from this book - Next Steps in Weaving by Pattie Graver (I really recommend this book if you are a new weaver or what to experiment with different types of weaving).

Now for some photos of our area -

All the best!♥︎

Your weaving is beautiful. I love seeing sunsets, especially when your on the plains and get such a fantastic landscape shot.
