Weaving project #1

To get started and practice using the loom, I pulled out some Briggs & Little wool I had and got to it.

I've now woven a piece of fabric I can use to make a new purse!  The extra red section at the end was just to use up the rest of the warp on the loom, but I'm thinking I can use it for the saddle bags I want to make for my spinning wheel.

Not a bad start.

This is a rosepath pattern.
And yes I did make errors, I found one treadling error in the red section.  I'll need to figure out how I did it, because I actually like the effect.  Therefore, it's not an error, it's a "design element" :)


  1. I love your "design" woven piece. It looks so good it's hard to believe it is your first one. Congrats!

    1. Thanks Chantal.... it's actually quite meditative once you get going.
