It's in the bag!


My first big weaving project. I have a 20" rigid heddle loom and have been experimenting with the log cabin pattern. I really like how something simple can look complex. This is with two differntly textured yarn. The colored is a alpaca/silk laceweight from KnitPicks. The black is plain crochet cotton. Both are doubled. After much contemplation, I decided on a bag. I was very pleased with the texture of the fabric, but it didn't have the drape of a wrap. It was very dificult making that first cut with the scissors!!! I am very pleased with it and even my husband said that perhaps this was the best fiber project I had made so far.

What seems strange to me is how different the fabric looks in its finished form vs. off the loom.

Very nice bag! It is surprising what happens to fabric in the washing isn't it?

Wow! What an interesting bag -- the colors and weave pattern complement each other well. It's luscious. :)
