I've become the weaving machine. This one is called the Ram's Horn pattern. It falls under the intermediate skills weaving. I'm not ready for the advanced stuff yet...although I might be able to muddle through it.
This is a piece that I started a couple weeks ago, and although it took a bit longer than other pieces due to the shifting of cards in opposite directions, I still finished it up fairly quickly. It also measures a bit over 4 yards. I considered selling these and tried to figure out what I would price these at. Without any idea what to base it on, I figured I'd check out Etsy and see if anyone else is making these. I found a couple pieces of this pattern priced between $80 and $125. Flooring! Absolutely flooring!
Here's my latest weaving project--a Saxon Threaded in reproduction pattern, which can be found at Carolyn's site. Since this is a period pattern, documentable, and in the Baronial colors, I would like to enter this one into the contest they hold at the big event in January. I'd love to find more period patterns, but I think it will involve buying a moderately priced book...or several. Peter Collingwood (starting at $47), John Mullarkey ($37), and Nancy Spies ($30) are on my short list of books I'd like to get. I have a gift card I'd like to use at Amazon for this.... :)
