I managed to finish the balloon bag straps and closure. That will have to be enough of a big finish for this year. I also started knitting a hat. I know, what does that have to do with inkle weaving? Well, it is knitted by an inkle weaver. and maybe it will have an inkle woven label. It could happen.
wove on the inkle, and warped a nomi. we'll see how the nomi warp turned out. I took thrums.... yes thrums, from my friends floor loom and and tied two groups together one by one with an overhand knot to make each individual warp double the length. I kept the color sequence, and may end up with something beautiful.
wow. with the lack of posting you might think I had taken a year off of weaving.
I was weaving instead of writing about weaving.
I wove with bags. I wove with balloon bags and then I wove with...(drumroll please...) balloons. Yes, twisty stretchy balloons. I even won a blue ribbon for my effort. Don't worry, I will try harder next year.
I also wove bands, and in October 2011, I made a coaster with 100 inches of inkle band. Why you ask? just because I could. It was so much fun, I made A SECOND ONE TO MATCH.
Now I suppose you want proof. (sigh) let me find my camera.
