Double Weave Happiness!

At the last weaving guild meeting, one of the members showed a beautiful piece of double weave/pickup work. Dark brown geometric patterns on a tan background. I was impressed! I was in awe! I wanted to do that!

A few days later as I thumbed through old weaving I came across a tutorial on ....Double Weave PickUp! I read it. I read it again. I back-pedaled and read Deb Chandler's section on double weave in "Learning to Weave". Then I re-read the article of interest.

And then I warped and started to weave. I love this sort of work! It's terribly slow...but oh, so satisfying to see the patterns emerge!!!

Thanks, Joan for showing your beautiful piece and sparking my interest in learning this technique!

These are really cool; I particularly like the snowflake.
