I finally got around to photographing the blanket I wove last semester for my final project in Intermediate Weaving. I really wanted to do something large & I was always fascinated by double cloth so I decided to make the most of it & make a huge blanket that I otherwise wouldn’t have been able to make on the size loom I was using. I was basically weaving two sides at the same time, creating a fold on the right side & leaving the left side open. When I was taking it off the loom I was able to open it up to twice the width.
I did have some trouble though. Since I had such a thick warp I wasn’t able to see through the yarn to see how my weaving was going on the under side of it. When I was finished I found a lot of mistakes even though I was going slow & being very careful. I was able to repair them though – so all is relatively well. Ha. It doesn’t look perfect but it comes with the process & I’m alright with that. The blanket full size ended up being 324x158cm (127x62in). Now, it sits on a chair, too precious to be used. I just can’t stand the thought of it being embedded with cat hair!
I realize that’s a very vague description & may not make sense to most people but I thought I’d give it a shot!
