She is finishing weaving her scarf on the studio Saori Wx60 folding loom. She is a sculpture, and workes with felting and hand built ceramics but this was her first adventure in the weaving world. I embrace the freedom in which she chose her yarns. textures and colors. I could hear kachina dancers spirts around me, although she was inspired by totally opposite associations in her saturated palette choices.
I want to mention something about the Saori wx60 folding loom, you can add height extenders to it. although Kacie is 5"4" she was having difficulties the first foot of her weaving getting comfortable. we tried the bench at different heights but it was still not quite right. Because saori looms have a unique cool feature inside sets which you can change out a current in process weaving with a differnt weaving with out re threading it, I then switched her weaving to one of the studio looms with the optional height extenders. She was very happy with the new adjustments and very comfortable.
Also having an adjustable weaving bench configured to her height allowed her weave in comfort .
She will finish twisting her fringes at home then soak and dry her scarf, because in weaving pieces are not finished untill they have be washed, or soaked , it softens and intergrates the warp and weft.
A really fun day Kacie, and a fantastic scarf. I think there may be more weaving in your future?
PEACEFUL WEAVING IN THE REDWOODS
