Weaving by Hand

I'm really liking this art piece in progress. I've learned a lot with each piece, and this one has taught me to use bulky yarns. Otherwise, a piece takes too long to complete. I hope to find a place on my wall for this one, and it will have the distinction of being the first one I have actually finished!

  2. Have you tried using strips of fabric for weaving?

  3. I love the varied texture of it. I have some silk shibori strips that would be lovely woven into a piece.

  4. I think it looks great. You are sure right, yarn takes a long time, but its a cool project to do. I'll post my WIP in a few days which I attribute entirely to you.

  5. I giggled when I read "otherwise a piece takes too long". The bulky yarn seems to make all the difference with the repetitive pattern and textures. Beautiful.
