Pat's Knitting and Quilting
April 23, 2012
I wanted to appreciate the nice 20" width of my loom, so decided to make a wider wrap. This is still only 17" wide because my warp calculations were off a bit, but it is lovely exactly how it is!
For the warp I used the leftover handspun yarn from these socks - It is All Spun Up Polworth/Silk in "Tapestry" colorway. The weft is Elann Baby Silk leftover from my Swallowtail shawl made several years ago - So it is a true "leftover" project just like I had planned when I bought the loom :)
Yarn: Every single inch of 320 yards (52 grams) of handspun 3 ply light fingering weight 85% Polworth/15% Silk fiber in "Tapestry" from All Spun Up.
The beauty and soft wonderful drape of this fabric is hard to see in pictures, but trust me, it is gorgeous!
This close up is while it is swinging in the wind on the tree so it is a little distorted, but you can see the pretty Tapestry handspun interlaced with the Baby Silk better - I adore these colors.
The picture below is somehow a bit flat and dull in color, but I put it in so you could see that my selvedges are improving...and the lilacs are pretty.
Here is what I looked like most of last week - the garden is in! (phone pic by Dave)
