Keeping things simple is difficult for me. I usually have to print out threading and treadling sequences of a weaving project, as the sequences are simply to long to know by heart. The set of kitchen towels I recently made was an exception to this custom. Just a straight twill threading and a very easy threadling sequence. No cheat sheets, just unencumbered weaving.
A while ago, I was browsing Handweaving.net and stumbled upon some weaving drafts using the Corris effect. I had no idea what the Corris effect was, but the drafts looked lovely. In this post, I share my experience of weaving Corris for the first time.
Perhaps one of the most well-known mathematical concepts in the world of handcrafts is the Fibonacci sequence.In one of my latest hand weaving projects, I used the Fibonacci sequence to design a wavelike pattern.
Now that winter is over, it is time to stash away the thick winter yarns and bring out some yarns suitable for spring. The start of spring is the perfect time to work on some light and airy shawls.
Last year, I became a member of the Dutch Weaving Association Weefnetwerk. To my surprise, they sent me a lovely gift by by mail sometime in November 2020. To make up for the lack of physical activities, each member received a colourful set of weaving cotton. This was such a nice surprise - the perfect present for every hand weaver.
