A little weaving...

I have a 24-inch Kromski rigid-heddle loom.  A friend gave me a sheep's fleece, so I cleaned and washed some of it and spun one skein of walnut colored woolen yarn (that I dyed with black walnut leaves) and one skein of white..  Here is the walnut colored yarn drying.

I decided to weave a scarf on my little loom.  I learned some things, and will do better next time, but I am very pleased with the hounds tooth pattern.  :)

Isn't that pretty?  It is for a birthday gift.


  1. Wow, I'm impressed by your skills. The colors of the yarn are beautiful and the weaving looks so even and smooth!

  2. I'm impressed! I did some weaving and spinning at school (over thirtyfive years ago....) and I remember I liked it. That's something to put on my crafts-to-do-list!

    1. I hope you will find your way back there again! How nice that you could learn it at school. Now we have YouTube! :)
