This afternoon I started working on my weaving project. This is my first attempt and I found the repetitive motions soothing. The yarn is soft, and feels nice in my hands. It's a gentle craft. Most of my yarn is a bit thin for this project but I didn't really want to rush out and buy a whole lot of new materials. I did a few rows of plain weave to anchor the project before adding two rows of long tassels. I may trim these. Then I wanted to experiment with some stripes and triangles. I have since filled in the triangle shaped hole with some nubby pink yarn. I'm liking it so far! I think a couple of stripes of white wool roving would look good, and maybe some other white, chunky, textured yarn. Looks like I'm going shopping after all!
