Latest Crazy Weaver Lady Experiment - Knitting on the Loom
This is something I've been wanting to try for a while, and apply it to my methods where I leave portions of my warp unwoven.
Here are two of the samples I've done so far. The warp is a tan color, with a pink weft. The one in the lower half of the photo is knitting of weft yarns, and in the upper half (in progress) is knitting of warp yarns.
I had an image in my mind of what working the stitches would be like, but as usual the execution was... different. You work the weft-knit stitches in columns, not in rows as in normal knitting. For the weft knitting, I found using a crochet hook worked better than the latch hook she recommends, but the latch hook seems better for the warp knitting.
What else can I say. This is so cool, knitting on the loom. Knitting. On the loom! Knitting. On. The. Loom.
I wonder where this path will lead?
