Another Scarf Done

19 Feb

I don’t want you guys to think I’m slacking over here. I know I’m Eric ‘The Quilter’, but lately I’ve been weaving. Don’t think I’ve given up quilts though. I haven’t, just off on a new adventure. In fact, one of the things I want to do, is weave some fabric for quilting. I’m honing my weaving skills so I can get to that, but right now I’m playing around with simpler weaving, like scarves. Also, I’m trying to use up some scarps from the factory I work at, but that’s for a different post.

This scarf is made from some fabulous yarn, and it’s soft, and gorgeous. I just adore it! Now sure what I’ll do with it yet, but I’ll figure that out later. Follow the jump for more photos! Continue reading

The Scarf Is Lava

11 Feb

 

We all played that game at some point or another, where you pretend the floor is lava… Well, I captured that essence in this lovely scarf woven completely from reclaimed factory scraps. I rejected hats from work for the warp and the weft. It turned out even more lovely than I had imagined, and let me tell you what, it is so warm!!!!

I’ve Been Busy

29 Dec

Work has consumed my life, as it always does this time of year, but now it’s calmed down a bit. I’ve been having a blast the past couple days with my free time, and I wanted to fill you in on what’s been going on. I’ve been pickling vegetables, making hot sauce, weaving a scarf, brewing kombucha, and few other things, but I promise to fill you in on all of it. Next post, I’ll tell you all about the kombucha, and a lot more! 

Wish me luck!

I Got An Ashford Loom!

I got an Ashford 24″ Rigid Heddle Loom, and yes, it’s amazing!

I’ve always been interested in looms. Ever since I was a little kid in boy scouts, I can remember going to an old farm house that had a giant floor loom, and being amazed by it. Now that I’m a 20-something, I’m even more astounded by them! I started out with this Ashford 24″, and I can already see myself investing in a floor loom… One of these days!

I’ve been weaving this scarf, and I just love it! It actually goes by rather quickly. I’m almost done with it already. I used all sorts of funky yarn. I even made some from strips of quilting fabric, and some from t-shirts, and old hats. It’s quite the textured hot mess you assume it would be, but I love it! I’m so excited to finish it off, and start work on my next project… A Rug!
