Purple Cravat

Purple Cravat

So what is a weaver’s favourite scarf?I have to confess, while I love a classic double-wrapped scarf, my go-tos are usually my Cravats!I love to wear a Cravat under a jacket - it gives a pop of colour under a black coat, and also looks great with a jumper or shirt.My favourite at the moment is the Liquorice Allsort cravat, although this Purple one is also totally delicious.

Perfectionism part 2

Perfectionism, part 2 …In my last video, I was talking about perfectionism, and how tapestry weaving is a perfectionist’s nightmare.Well, in contrast, handweaving demands perfectionism!If the loom is warped up incorrectly, even if you miss one single thread … the whole pattern will be thrown out, and fixing it takes nearly as long as warping up the whole loom all over again :OWhen actually weaving, one pass in the wrong shaft combination will also result in the pattern being incorrect, so it needs to be unpulled and corrected.Handweaving is very mathematical, logical, and process-driven.Which is why I love it!Maybe that’s...
