Shuttle, bobbin and handwoven cloth

This is one of my handwoven pieces from last summer. I'm hankering to warp one of my looms this spring and create some new cloth. In my yarn stash, I have a handpainted warp chain from a class I took with Christie Dunning at the University of California, San Diego Crafts Center. During the same handpainting session in that inspiring class, I painted a complementary skein of weft yarn.

In a few days, after my sister and her lovely kiddies head home after a too-short visit, I'll pull out my copy of Learning to Weave by Debbie Chandler, complete some calculations for my envisioned project, and get down to warping. Oh, the possibilities!

  1. I've never tried using a loom but always wanted to. I found your site through the etsy blog thread.
