It's amazing what you find!

Last year I visited the Knitting and Stitching show at Alexandra Palace, London. Before we even got inside I thought that the Rose window looked a good source of inspiration so I took a pic. Once inside it still looked amazing! The show had loads to look at but one yarn that caught my eye was from the House of Hemp. I didn't buy any on the day but sent for some by mail order.
I decided to use it for a weaving project and wanted to do a check design so I warped the loom using the three colours.

Here's the finished result!
I like the colours together but wasn't happy with the edges of the weaving, not tidy enough for me. I might have to cut it up and use it for another project!

Looming ahead

Decided to warp up the loom and get weaving! I'm using a 2 shaft rigid heddle loom and sampling with various yarns before deciding on a project.
