Weaving Project: Nautical Runner


We’re working on our on-line newsletter which should be out in a few days. It’ll feature our new 15” Cricket Loom, helpful weaving tips, as well as this project designed and woven by our intern Cei Lambert. I always love basket materials, so perhaps that is why I find this piece so appealing. The warp is simply cotton string (the same we use for drive bands for our spinning wheel—always good to use something at the ready) for warp. The weft features a 5/8 natural rug linen (Yarn Barn with accents of some sea grass I had leftover from a basket project (always good to use up a bit of stash). I love the combination of different materials and weave structure. Look for the complete weaving instructions in our upcoming newsletter. We’ll post it on our website. You can also subscribe to our newsletter…just send a request to sign up for the newsleter…and get weaving!
