Type of item: Accessory
Warp: Knit Picks City Tweed DK. Colour: Morning Glory Weft: Noro Yuzen. Colour: 6. Hemstitched fringe.
What was your inspiration?
The Noro yarn. It knits up kind of horribly, but is perfect in weaving. That's one of the great things I see about weaving: yarns behave entirely differently than they do in knitting.
What are you most proud of?
The beat is quite even. And the yarn is a good choice: it behaves awesomely.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Watch which yarn you choose for the warp. I was tempted to use the Noro for a warp, and it would have been terrible: way too soft. The "snap" test saved me from that error.
