Plans

I spent a couple of hours planning future projects. One being the weave-a-long that I’m participating in (and REALLY excited about!!!!!) and the others being things I can weave quickly, easily and sell as a lower end item. I had forgotten that there was a pattern on Weavezine for bookmarks! So I’m planning on doing that. I just needed the basic info like sett, yarn, number of ends, etc and I’ll probably tweak it a little.

I also re-read the article about thrum coasters. I’d like to try that as well, but since I don’t have any Harrisville wool lying around (boy do I wish I did!!! *sigh*) I’ll probably use cotton. Come to think of it…I really need to buy more cotton…I’m running a little low after I wove 6 messenger bags! hmmm…..

Anyway, so those are my plans for now. I also want to get some wool or use some of the lace weight stuff I have and weave a collapse weave project. It’s SO cool and fun! And it’s just plain weave so it’s easy.

Hmm…I also want to weave a double weave blanket. Since this blanket project I currently have is not going how I thought it would, I want to redeem myself by making another one that’s actually a BLANKET! There’s a great project in one of the Handwoven’s I got (I think it’s like May/June or something) for a double width blanket. I think they use Harrisville yarn (AGAIN! It’s everywhere! …Except in my stash) but I could substitute something else of a similar weight.

Okay. This was a random post but I like to have my thoughts on projects recorded somewhere. 🙂 And my blog just happens to have this great archive feature.

PS: I also have been thinking about getting some Maysville Carpet Warp and making clutch bags like I did with my intro sampler. 🙂 Funny story: My mom and my sister and I all took intro to fibers at completely different times and all of us unknowingly made clutch bags with our intro weaving samplers.

  1. Sounds like you have some great ideas for projects. I would LOVE to make a blanket- that runner I made with left over wool for my footstool NEEDS to be a blanket. I don't know if we'll end up doing that double wide one on the weavealong (SOOOO EXCITED!!!) so you should just give me the info so I can do it too 🙂

  2. I get torn between shows on Mondays. How I met your Mother or Chuck? Castle or Hawaii 5-0? Theres another one that I'm forgetting. Since I'm with the fam it was Hawaii 5-0. 🙂
