Yet another learning experience

Tip to the wise: When you are weaving, be sure to check how much yarn you have on hand. Actually weigh it, and check the yards per pound of that size yarn. How much do you have? Now, calculate out how many yards worth you will actually need. Is there enough?


Ok, can you get more of that particular yarn in time?

No? Ummm...

I wonder how this project will look with some green stripes in there...?


  1. Lol! I rarely measure the yarn ahead of time correctly when I weave. So, I am at peace with our projects coming out kind of organic and "artsy"!

  2. I figure weaving is an ongoing process of creative problem solving. I just don't usually have an issue before I even start to get the project on to the loom!

    Organic is good. Flexibility is good. Artsy is good.
