Repeating the Weaving Class

24 Feb

This past weekend I repeated the multi-harness weaving class I took last summer at C & M Acres.

I just adore the little alpacas.  If I were to get an alpaca, I’d want those gorgeous silver/gray ones.

It was a great tour of the mill also.  It is unbelievable the amount of fleece they process.  They also have a store where they sell their roving, yarn, rugs, and other products.

Anyhow, back to the class.  I was so clueless about everything the last time I took it that I thought I could actually learn and remember a lot more if I did it again.  I worked on the same type of floor loom as I used for the rug weaving class.  It was much easier to do the setup this time.

I am really liking this loom.  I was much more relaxed with the process, and it made for an enjoyable weekend.

Here’s the finished piece I made.

Compared with the one from last time.

first one; second one

They are offering an intermediate class in April that I plan on attending to learn more skills.
