i use this stuff for warp all the time. There are three ways to weave, one where the warp shows, one where it doesn't and one where both warp and weft show. i am starting with #3. but i will talk about that soon. ,
if it's a cotton crochet thread it's probably mercerised and that means it should dye up easily. good idea. I often use perle cotton to weave with, similar stuff. kaite
A very zen photo.... when I saw it at first I thought it the thread was an interesting lamp or a vessel.....
my little loom is out but so many choices of thread since i do bobbin lace, tatting and crochet. sometimes there are too many choices. i, too, will wait, watch and listen until the right time comes along.
deanna...i am waiting because ihave NO CLUE about weaving, really.of course understand the basicconcept because i look closely atcloth...but how to begin..clueless.i was good at crochet, but theneed to keep track as in knittingetc was always beyond me...countingpattern etc.so, eeee...............but i did order one of these looms...looks exactly the same....wheni ordered the greatgrandbaby'sfirst birthday present. i am a late bloomer in some ways
and you are planning to weave julian's present?
nance...i am laughing. No! idon't know HOW to weave. at all.no. but what i am getting him is almostas crazy...a keyboard. not a baby one, buta cheap casio. it has all thosevariations, waltz, samba, salsa,etc. he LOVES music and he LOVEStrying to use his mama's computerkeyboard. i thought that they could make up songs together, sing.nutz, huh. oh well.the weaving...it's the little beadloom on jude's blog..actually what i have in my mindfloating around is a very verylooosely woven thing of just string.i don't know if that is evenpossible.xo
oh grace you are too good. that is the perfect present for julian... maybe he will not have to play it with his socks! but as to the weaving, of course you can do it and i think a basic weaving of string will be oh so lovely... like a woven block of muslin with just the stitching.
Grace: I too thought you had created a beautiful container of some sort! My crochet cotton or whatever it's called doesn't look as beautiful!
Learning at all ages: great grandmama grace with her little bead loom. Julian with his keyboard, music from both as grace hums to see thread weaving, as Julian pounds and plays and sings and the freeze frame of this is a lovely snapshot of family.
Marti..yes it is ~and you created it with yourwords.~learning~xoxo
Penny...it is really elegant, isn'tit. i bought it last year when iwent into Albuquerque to get someembroidery floss...upon findingSpirit Cloth. it was just nearthe floss rack and though i hadno need for it, i did love it'sbeauty.
The little man seems also to be admiring it...
I wind cotton crochet thread into hanks, dye it and stitch with it. I have a little weaving frame (hubs made it for me) and I've used the crochet cotton as a warp on that.
