I signed up for a challenge on a Saori weaving thread. I vowed to weave at least a little bit every day.
As I predicted the commitment to do just a little each day has led me to weaving a LOT each day. The Saori loom makes weaving so much fun that once I get going it's hard to stop!
I really appreciate the back saving tools like the cross-holder (not pictured), the reed/harness stand, and the easily removed harnesses.
The warp for this scarf project is all from freebees I picked up at a
guild exchange. The purple is three threads that were wound together
into a large ball. Two of the threads are what appears to be a 2/8
cotton, the third thread is a cotton chenille I think. In addition to that ball I added in a novelty ladder yarn also picked up free at the guild exchange..
The warp was "free", but I really paid for that in a terrible mess of tangles that I had to fight with throughout the beaming on. I didn't realize when I was winding the warp, but those three purple threads were wound around each other in the ball.
For weft I am using a very fine merino/cashmere/silk from Colourmart.
