Finished weaving a new scarf while taking a online weaving class from School of Sweetgeorgia http://www.schoolofsweetgeorgia.com This is one of the scarves I recently finished. School of Sweetgeorgia was something I had been wanting to join for a while. They have online classes on knitting, weaving, spinning, tapestry weaving and more. Tutorials, patterns, and a forum you can join to chat with others. Even though I had been weaving for about a year and mostly learning from YouTube videos I felt I needed to fine tune my skills. I learned so much from the video online classes at School of Sweetgeorgia including very important basics I was missing. Learning about all the tools and options for weaving including the type of looms was eye opening. I use a Rigid Heddle Loom by Ashford for weaving and have 2 sizes. If you are looking to improve your weaving skills or learn from scratch I highly recommend School of Sweetgeorgia.
This scarf was made various sock weight yarns on the warp in different coloured stripes and on the weft I used a Merino Silk lace yarn by Sweetgeorgia Yarns. I love the delicate feel of the fibre with the warp in a heavier weight than the weft. The colour palette underneath the weft gives a more subtle effect. Working on a sock blank scarf next in beautiful greens and blues, also from School of Sweetgeorgia. Down the road I hope to try out the Tapestry Weaving courses and the Colour Theory courses.
