Weaving class this week

A beginner weaving class was held at the LYS (local yarn store) and this is the scarf I made during class.  I totally enjoyed the class, the other students, and teacher of course.  And being in the center of the yarn shop immersed us in brilliant, vibrant color, layers texture, different fibers for any fiber art we might be interested in.  Any of these yarns used for knitting or weaving can also be used for rug hooking.  We need to be aware of the thickness of the yarn and match that up to the #cut wool strips we use.  The more slippery the yarn the more we have to pack in the holes of the backing to make it secure.   Only 100% wool yarn should be on the floor rugs.  Any other alternative fibers can be used for wall hangings, table runners, bags, or pillows.  Visit your LYS and see what is new , and give it a try in your next project.
