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.

    Good job! It’s beautiful! That really is a nice loom. I only tried weaving once, but it was fun.

    I agree – alpacas are really adorable!

    Wow, look at you go! What a great job. Your patterns are so nice and evenly woven. I am excited to see what you learn in the intermediate class – you will know more than I do for sure! So when are you buying a floor loom? They come up quite often on Craig’s List and you can get one for a good price sometimes. Just…enabling….you know…

      You should come join me for the intermediate class. They still have an opening. 😉 I’m hoping to get a loom this spring. I really like the one I’m learning on. I want to make sure it’s a little bigger though. I want to be able to do a 2 ft. x 3 ft. rug. I can get into weaving and knitting (but not spinning–I don’t know why). No need to even enable.
