I wasn't sure what I was going to weave at first, I started out with some handspun singles, which I bundled into 3 strands, and started playing with some wedge-weave-style techniques. I decided to base the piece on the song Little Boxes by Malvina Reynolds...
Little boxes on the hillside, little boxes all the same
There's a green one and a pink one and a blue one and a yellow one
And they're all made out of ticky tacky and they all look just the same.
I had trouble finishing the last few rows, and found out in my Ravelry Tapestry Weaving group that I should have woven a few rows from the top down to make it easier to get those last few rows in! I'll try that next time!
I ended up making a hem at the top...
More information about the tapestry:
Sett: 10 wpi
Warp: Jaggerspun wool warp
Weft: varying yarns, mostly handspun, some Jaggerspun Zephyr wool-silk/wool.
Some of the yellow was handspun on a spindle on the 31st... took 20 minutes. It had a LOT of live twist, even when I put 2 strands together, but seems to have settled well on the piece.
I did some wedge weave (for the hills and sky), and soumak for the top & bottom.
