It's been about a year since I took up #weaving as a hobby! This thread will look back at my projects and progress over the past year.
First let's talk looms. I started as many weavers do on a rigid heddle loom. I opted for the widest Kromski loom they make so I had the most flexibility. Then about a month in, I lucked into a *free* floor loom and since then most of my projects have been on that.
Scarves! I have made so many scarves this year. It is a great starter project and a great gift. I started with a basic plain weave pattern but also did a matching pair of tweed and plaid scarves for my wife and me.
I also made a few table runners, which are basically just wide, long scarves. My first attempt was a Forbes tartan-inspired plain weave table runner, which I used to learn how to weave plaids. Later I wove an overshot table runner to practice that technique.
I also made a two rugs that we are using at entrances into our house. The first I made on the rigid heddle loom using a krokbragd technique and the second on my floor loom using rep weave. It only took a week or two to work up nerve to wipe our feet on them.
