As I mentioned, I have a new, old loom sitting in my studio (ha!). This was my first project, using some of the stash yarn I bought for knitting long time ago. Warp was white cotton, which I ran out of while measuring the warp, so I added some green cotton yarn. Then I used some leftover tape yarn in denim, or something like that.
This is a little longer piece, a mug rug if you wish. This yarn was very soft; wider than the warp, it covers it completely in the half-basket weave pattern I used. Even the selvedges turned out very nice.
For these four, I used the same warp, but different cotton weft, also denim, variegated. This yarn was also thicker than the warp, but stiffer so it did not cover the warp. This is plain weave. Quite a different effect.
Not too bad for the first project. I am not going to wet finish these. I like them a little stiffer, good for a coaster.
