Sample exchange

During our weaving guild meeting on Saturday our Huck and Beyond class met to exchange the samples we wove for the class. The assignment was to explore huck by weaving a sample either from a found pattern or by inventing one of our own. We wove one for each person in the class and received samples from each classmate in exchange.

It was fascinating to see the patterns and materials each person selected to work with. There was cotton, wool, and wool/silk. Some of us played with more than one color or type of yarn.

I used two shades of purple 10/2 cotton for my sample weaving of huck flowers. We all learned a lot, from our own weaving and from seeing how other weavers interpreted patterns.

I’m looking forward to many more experiments.
