Backstrap Weaving, Take 1.

Posted by Emily In | 1 comments»
Last weekend I took a great Guatemalan Backstrap weaving class at Weaving Hand in Brooklyn. It was an intro class, so we made little sampler belts. I used three different colors of sport-ish weight velour yarn, one of which is variegated. I had a lot of fun making it, and learned enough new stuff to get me excited about weaving again. Yay!

Here it is wrapped around my drill (I was making some DIY heddles...with limited success...)

And here I am modeling it! Yay! Ready for a night out at The Castello Plan
