A wee bit of silk!

The sample has tons of mistakes, but I put on 2 yards so that I would have plenty of warp left for a couple of projects I have in mind.  I made many, many rookie mistakes warping with these tiny threads so I took longer than it should have.  You would think I would know all that by now!

The white plain weave background is silk sewing thread and the 13  red pattern threads are 20/2 silk yarn.  I have some ideas rolling around in my head for the shows, but I am going to have to get better at this first!

Until next time, Happy Weaving, Tina

Teeny-tiny silk threads!!! Oh, my!!!! That pattern is a keeper, though!

How pretty Tina. I'm awed. Just working on a narrower band on the little Glimakra without a pick up technique is enough for me right now and those are 8/2 threads.

So, that's just on a regular loom, not an inkle? I'm about to start trying pick up on the inkle. I wish I could come over and play!
