This is all I see!, originally uploaded by Soasa Designs.

I’m absolutely hooked on weaving. My class yesterday was wonderful, and I understood a great deal of it, though the new vocabulary is a bit tricky. We learned to warp the loom and all that is involved with that, as well as a good bit of history (although I can’t say I have any idea what she said regarding that…)

Weaving is a great way to utilize some of the yarn I have that I can’t knit with! Cottons, silks, even acrylics… I’m so excited to finally get into some of the pretty yarns I have! The picture above is of my second project…Yes I was so enthused when I got home yesterday that I finished the class project and warped a second because I couldn’t wait to use the cute peachy cotton yarn I had in my drawer!

Check out my Project Spectrum Set on Flickr for more of what I’m working on!

East: Weaving Yellow, originally uploaded by Soasa Designs.

Hello y’all!

I’m still alive! Still in South America too:) This post has nothing to do with that though, sorry.

Recently I joined in on a year-long journey called Project Spectrum. You can read a bit about it and see some group photos here! Also more of my photos here! The idea is to incorporate a special focus involving color into your everyday creative practices. This year’s theme is Cardinal Directions, and we are just wrapping up North and it’s associated color, which was green. We are moving into East, and yellow! For that I am excited to announce that I’m taking a weaving class and it begins on Saturday! I’m really thrilled, as weaving is something I’ve wanted to learn for a long time and never found the time or money for. What better time than this? Above is a photo of my new loom, and my first skein of yellow yarn!
