Here is my second woven project, a soy-silk scarf.
Once again I used a yarn that was too thin for my heddle, and once again my edges are a bit loose and wonky. But I'm definitely getting the hang of weaving.
I'm often frustrated by the quality of the things I make, and tend to take a long time to learn anything. It has occurred to me more than once that I might actually benefit from actually taking a CLASS (or 12) to learn more about all the different crafts I do. I am normally a complete nerd, and learn really well in a formal class setting. But for some reason when it comes to my crafts I feel a powerful need to just 'figure it out' myself. Even if figuring it out involves a huge waste of materials and being continually dissatisfied with the results. But really, I know I would actually learn a few things if I took some classes
So when I was in the yarn shop the other day (chatting with the sales lady about my new adventures in weaving) and I found out that they would be offering a 'learn to weave' class, I finally decided to bite the bullet and sign up.
I'm looking forward to seeing what tips and techniques I learn. Hopefully this will mean that my future weaving projects will be far more impressive!
