Video tutorial for weaving circles on the peg loom

Weaving a circle can be a tricky thing on most looms.

But, thanks to short row techniques, weaving a circle on a peg loom is really quite simple.

I’ve been weaving a lot of them lately, as they are a motif that I love to work with.

I’ve made a video tutorial showing how to weave small circles on my Dewberry Ridge peg loom- and at the end of the video, I show a few examples of what I have been using those circles for…..

Happy weaving!

Woven Women- In the Heart of the Flower

In the deep mid-winter, I long for flowers.

My studio is full of plants that bloom, and I am grateful for their beauty.

Even though I can’t have flowers growing outside in the deep deep snow and ice,

I can dream of flowers and weave yarn songs to blossoms and blooming……

Here is my homage to flowers and blossoms:

Peg loom tapestry Dreaming the Well

I am working on a series of woven piece, called, ‘Woven Women’.

Here is my most recent Woven Woman,  ‘Dreaming the Well’.

I wove her on a peg loom.

Here she is, with the weaving complete, still on the pegs of the loom.

And, then, I got out my felting needles and spent many, many, many hours, felting the details onto her:

And here are some closer looks.

She’s 27 inches tall by 17 inches wide (69 cm by 43 cm).

Unfortunately, my camera messes with the colors and makes the edges harsher… the felting does soften things up very nicely.

The images are based on meditations, dreams and just whatever wanted to be woven at that moment.

I keep promising to show more of the Woven Women pieces, so I will post more pics of them throughout the next few days, so stay tuned!

Mustn’t leave without giving credit to my daughter in law, for many of the handspun yarns in ‘Dreaming the Well’: LINK

And, as always…. go gently and with joy! 😀
