FO: Tri-Loom Shawl
My first woven shawl is done! I finished it last night, and I am very pleased with it.
Here is a pic before taking it off the loom:
The weaving was fun and fast. The only good picture that I could get of it off the loom was this one in which my youngest daughter had placed one of her drawings:
I guess the white of the page kept my camera from brightening/distorting the shawl colors.
Here is a close-up of the weaving:
It is by no means perfect, but I love it none-the-less. I used my hand-dyed merino fingering weight yarn in the "girly" colorway. I'm now cutting yarn for a different form of tri-loom weaving called the "cut lengths method" that moves diagonally across the loom. I'll be using a thicker yarn this time for a fuller shawl.
In other news, check out this cool darning "egg" that I bought from http:www.islandgirla.blogspot.com:
It is made of cedar cleared from the aftermath of Katrina. John carves beautiful nostipines and darning eggs from wood he's cleared as a member of the Coastguard working in the area, and his wife Alicia sells them. Each piece is unique and I want to buy them all, but for now I have the cedar one. I found them through an online fiber sales list. The pieces are selling like hot-cakes.
