The Runner

No, not the athletic kind. I finished the Big Weaving Project of a Thanksgiving table runner. This was a stretch for me since I’ve never tried overshot weaving before. It sounded complicated (and the threading draft was downright scary), but the wonderful woman at the Yarn Barn, where I purchased the pattern, encouraged me and explained the process in a way that sounded doable. Here are a few shots of the process:

  1. Amazingly, it wasn’t nearly as complicated as I had feared when I took it on. Threading the warp threads took the most time (it usually does) and a huge amount of attention. But once I got the hang of weaving two patterns (one extremely simple) at the same time, the weaving itself just sailed along. It was really fun!
