We finally have both looms warped and have been doing some weaving, especially today since we had a major ice storm/snow event overnight. An electric line (Chris thinks a neutral wire) came down along the main lane last evening, and is right across the section of lane that comes back to our house. So it forced me to stay home from work, and Chris didn't have anything scheduled for today either..... so let's weave!!!!
I've been working on the Union in the lower level (basement) that has a 34" warp on it in earthy tones. We have a special order piece that we need to weave, but thought I'd crank out a few other rugs first.
Another rug that's already been done and is wound on the cloth beam in front is one using a fleece that was given to us by a friend. It made a really nice fluffy rug. Can't wait to get it off the loom and tied up.
Chris has been hard at work on some rayon chenille scarves..... he's not real happy with the white bamboo warp, so after this warp is woven off, I'm sure we'll be doing some earthy tones of rayon chenille for the next warp!!!!
He did a double stripe of a mixed rayon chenille yarn, and it really looks sharp. Looks like it will be a pretty luxurious scarf!!!!!
Well, back to the office for me tomorrow...... .thanks to Walt who volunteered to pick me up at the end of our lane. Should be a brisk 1/4 mile walk for me in the morning!!!!!
