Yup, the cats are walking on the keyboard again. Either that, or those are Dark and Light threads in the inkle pattern I made up and wove last night. I'm betting on the second, since the cats have gotten themselves banished from my studio for trying play in the wool roving. While I'm trying to spin it. Bad kitties!
This pattern gives a checker board result. I used dark blue cotton crochet thread for the Dark, and a very pale variegated pastel cotton for the Light. I think the lighter thread was originally intended for cutesy baby stuff, but I like it better this way.
I actually remembered to take pictures this time. Now you can see how pushing down or up on the threads creates a 'shed', or an opening for the weaving shuttle to go through.
The finished band is just around two yards long, which is as long as I can do on my little loom. I'm starting to think that I need one of the bigger inkle floor looms. Wouldn't this one be lovely? http://www.thomas-creationsllc.com/index_files/Page1418.htm *sigh* One of these days. I need to sell a few more things in the Etsy shop before I can look at new equipment, though. So until that point, I'll just be making bands in two yard chunks.
I am pleased with how this pattern turned out. What do you think?
