I've been playing with my arched looms:

The piece on the left is experimenting to see if my 2 ply wool warp yarn would work with Waverly yarn using all 3 strands. It works alright, but I think 2 strands might be better. I'm playing with weaving from the back...that's why there are so many strands sticking out.

The piece on the left is yarn that I handpainted YEARS ago... tapestry doesn't need to be done on any specific colored yarn because the weft is supposed to totally cover the warp. I decided I wanted to try using the same yarn for warp & weft thinking I would try doing wedge weave as a plain weave,but it didn't want to work. I'll just press on until I run out of warp & then I may try doing the same thing again with proper warp yarn with this weft.

I'd love to find a wedge weave class so I can learn more about this technique. I was really hoping to be able to take a class in Rio Grande tapestry weaving at Estes Park next week, but that didn't work out.

I have some new products that will be on the website sometime in June: new forks, some straight handled, some curved handled, an arch loom that would make a nice sized bookmark.They're around
3-1/2" by 7". It might be fun to weave words on it!
