This is the beginning on an oval shape that I configured out of my Martha Stewart Knit/Weaving loom kit, which hubby got me for Christmas. I used some fun yarn from an old stash of yarns, plus some new yarn yarn that I picked up at Wal-Mart to practice with.
This is actually the first one I tried, and it is on a handmade cardboard loom. I tried different textures and stutches on it. The yarns wrap all the way around the loom, then are cut and tied off to make the fringe. Here it is still on the loom.
This one is about 10" x 12", including the fringe. I'm not liking the fringe much and am thinking I might trim it off some. These can be used for coasters (smaller weavings), mats, journal covers, embellishments on tote bags, etc. Whatever I want!
Both pieces hanging against a large mixed media WIP painting that I have redone so many times it's not even funny. She is about to wind up in pieces for art journaling, I think. Anyway, Saori weaving is a lot of fun, and I think I prefer the handmade cardboard looms over the MS looms. They are easier to handle while weaving, at least they are to me. :)
