Simple things

Rag coasters

Weaving simple works when one can’t weave on your floor loom. These rag weave coasters were woven on a 2 harness peacock table loom. They will be gifted to a neighbor whose dog ate their last coasters.

Rep-weave

I’ve started to weave on the remaining warp from the Rosalie Neilson workshop I took in October. I’ve designed a new runner with what I learned in the workshop. When the rep weave runner is off the loom and hemmed I’ll share the final results. The runner is woven but there is still another yard of warp I want to weave. With any luck the weaving will be completed yet this week.

This red Amaryllis bought in the after Christmas sales is now blooming, brightening up this gray overcast day.

  1. Love your rag coasters. Perfectly simple. Your runner from Rosalie’s workshop uses colour very effectively. I enjoyed her workshop too.

  2. I need to learn to do rep weave! I really love those bold blocks of color. So much weaving to learn . . .

    • Kerry, you’ll try all those weaves some day. Since it is a warp faced weave your sett is doubled what you would normally sett for plain weave. The weaving goes faster as long as your shafts don’t stick I recommend using mercerized cotton.
