March 22


I decided to try weaving with yarn on my pot holder loom.  The last time I went to Chicago Weaving School, Natalie said I could achieve a weft-face weave, on it.  It's a lot more complex without a shuttle or warp stick, but it is totally possible.  I even remembered some of the patterns.  I put the ruler in at the bottom to keep me from weaving down too far to weave the edges in at the end.  It's also keeping some of the warp in place.  A couple pulled off, but it seems stable enough.  It's not great, but it's not awful.  My edges are coming in farther than I would like them to.  It probably has something to do with using a wide-toothed comb to push the weft down.
