3 panel Triangle loom shawl woven on 3 foot tri loom

Recently, I designed a fun shawl, and made a video about how to weave a shawl with a collar using 3 triangles woven on the 3ft triangle loom.

 

The border is made up of triangles woven on the potholder loom.

Here’s the video:  The video is full of hints and tips for triangle loom weaving in ‘outside the box’ ways.

Here are 2 ways of weaving triangles on the potholder loom:

I made a separate video about how to stitch the pieces of the shawl together:

A gift of love-A heart and hands scarf

I wanted to wrap my daughter with love, so I decided to weave her a stole or scarf that has the hand prints of our near and dear.

And in the hand prints, are little hearts that I wove on my heart loom. LINK for how to weave them.

I wove the triangles on the 14 inch triangle loom from Dewberry Ridge looms LINK

And showed how to do the chain stitch drawings: LINK

And, how to weave the flower from hearts: LINK

Because the scarf/stole/shawl will be seen from both sides, I stitched a heart to each side of the stole :o)

I plan on crocheting an edge around it eventually, but am holding off on that until we are sure that we don’t want more triangles added to it.

I love being able to pour my love into a special gift- with love in every stitch! 😀

In every stitch is a wish for happiness!

Dragonfly shawl woven on the triangle loom

Last summer was a dragonfly summer. Countless dragonflies zipped and zoomed in glorious flashes of color and startling aerial acrobatics.

It was fabulous!

What wasn’t fabulous was the reason for their huge population upsurge: A vicious swarming plague of mosquitoes. UGH!

Ah well… here we are in deep mid winter, and now it’s just the memories of the dragonflies that are a pleasure, without the nasties of the mozzies.

I celebrated my love of dragonflies by weaving a shawl on the 7 foot configuration of the Dewberry Ridge triangle loom (LINK)

I wove it with handspun wool that has shots of silk and angelina in it.

I also included rows of eyelash yarn every 28 nails, which gave me the perfect grid for embroidering the dragonflies.

I embroidered the dragonflies onto the shawl while it was still stretched on the loom- the loom is the perfect embroidery hoop!

It is definitely a one of a kind, as all the combination of elements that came together to make it just won’t happen again.

When I was doing the embroidery, I turned the loom every which way to make it easier to get to each square.

The dragonflies are embroidered with silk that I spun on my support spindle.

I didn’t use a pattern or drawing to embroider the dragonflies.

Pardon the pun, but I just ‘winged’ it. :p

People stop me to admire the shawl when I wear it. It gives me an opportunity to talk about weaving, spinning and embroidery (and spool knitting, too!)

I don’t like fringes on shawls- so I spool knitted a looooooooooooooooong cord, and stitched it onto the shawl while it was still on the loom.

That was wonderfully easy! I held the spool knitted cord up against the outside of the nails, and ‘v’ (baseball stitch) it to the shawl.

This video shows how to stitch cord to a finished woven edge:

Happy dragonflies! Happy triangles! Happy everything…. 😀
