Okay, we all know I’m moving house soon & have forbidden myself from beginning any new weaving projects 😦 – but what’s your excuse?
I just had a lovely email from one of my Etsy customers, Angela Baty, showing me the cute little pouch she wove (left) after buying a DIY Play Your Cards Right Kit. She used a self-striping knitting yarn, which is a great idea if you have some lying about, as it saves changing yarns every time you want a new colour (and saves tucking in so many loose ends).
If you’re very patient, you could try weaving with a patterned sock yarn, but it would take FOREVER to weave! But if you do have the patience, and you packed the yarn firmly, you would have a very sturdy little pouch at the end of it!
So what are you working on? I’d love to see photos, whether you’ve woven something from a TangleCrafts kit or followed one of my freebie patterns.
And please let me know if you come across any anomalies in the instructions, whether it’s a typo, or just plain wrong! One of my DIY Weaving Club subscribers, Arteth Gray, found that the glue I suggested wasn’t strong enough to hold the comb/board loom together while she wove. I suggested instead using gaffer tape to hold the comb in place (not very pretty, but very strong & practical); but Arteth said “I tied the comb on with some embroidery thread, and that seems to be working well” – so there’s another tip for you!
