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:

Garden Shawl woven on Triangle loom

For a couple of months now, I have been working on a large project…

Garden Shawl  1 A(c)

I wove a shawl on my 7 foot Triangle loom from Dewberry Ridge looms:

And have been designing and weaving all manner of motifs on the Thumbelina, heart, dragonfly and 2 inch Wiz looms, to stitch to it:

I really don’t like gardening anymore, and would much rather be weaving…

Garden Shawl  1 B(c)

So, I have created a garden on a shawl…

To wrap myself in Garden pleasures all year round.

That’s a dragonfly shawl pin that I made.

All the links to the videos to weave all the motifs are here on my blog and on my youtube channel,

so if you would like to weave yourself a fantasy garden, too, you can!

Just click on the Thumbelina category and follow those, or simply click on the back arrow, and you can scroll backwards to find all the tutorials.

Here’s a video slide show of the shawl:

The looms are all built by Dewberry Ridge Looms LINK

 

I am now moving deeply into a commissioned tapestry, so I won’t be here quite as often as I have been in the last few weeks, but I will be back!

Blessings until then!

Happy Weaving!

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…. 😀
