Finding Time to Weave…

So my bestie, Sabine, brought me an 80cm Kromski harp. In between a lot of knitting and crocheting, I found some time to make the biggest piece of woven fabric I have made to-date.

Using the 10-dent heddle, I warped with Habu silk — half in purple, and half in beige. My weft was two balls of Zauberball crazy. I have made several small pieces using the same combination, and the pooling of the Zauberball is always incredible.

This piece will now be sent to Italy to be used for a not-yet-announced-and-super-secret project. Stay tuned for more details about the future of this piece by joining me on Facebook or Ravelry.
