I finished my weaving sampler! I must admit that it dragged on a bit, and then got pushed aside while I knit a bunch of socks. But I pulled it back out the other night and finished last night! Well, finished the warp, but I still have to figure out what I'm going to do with the ends.
Specifics are vague. I just warped on a super long warp that ended up being just over 1 foot wide and I think it's nearly 8ft long! I used three different yarns. It's warped with a light fingering/lace weight red wool, weft with the red, a blue of the same yarn (I think it may be handspun? I received it as a gift from my Mum already in cakes) and then at the end I used up the last bit I had remaining of the fingering weight Chroma in the Prism colourway. This is all on a 15" Schacht Flip rigid heddle loom.
Keep in mind this is my first ever solo weaving project pretty please? I'm quite happy with it. (Although I have zero clue what to do with such an oddly shaped item) Tons of mistakes, but I like that I leaned from them and eventually got the edges and weave density (is that the right term for how hard I beat the weft?) worked out. I have no clue what to do with the ends yet lol.
I'm hooked though! I don't know what to warp next, some thicker handspun or that ball of Chroma I have. I loved how it worked up at the end there. I'm also gratefully accepting any tips and criticism. I love to learn! I have a rigid heddle book waiting on me to give it a good read, but I wanted to have a handle on what was going on so I could understand what I was reading.
So that's it! I'm hooked now, but I don't know how much yarn I need to do a handspun scarf, or the warping dimensions. So I'm going to read up on that (tips welcome) so I know what sort of yardage I need to have on hand to finish a good size scarf. Is 396 yards of fingering weight Chroma enough for a scarf perhaps? I'm thinking of using some cream palette for the warp.
