      I love seeing everyone’s projects!  They are all very inspiring!  Here are my denting projects:

      41262C35-342A-466A-AEEA-D8D879C89474A0AEE046-A052-456C-85C8-4CDB8BA7DAC8EABE0969-4F84-4E27-A860-13940AEEBAB1

      ‘The first scarf was woven in pattern in the cotton, the second one was done in cotton without denting in the weft and the last one was done with merino in the weft.  The second one ended up being a bit stiff.  I really like the other two.  They seemed to be kind of crazy while they were being woven , but look great after finishing.

        I love seeing everyone’s beautiful projects!  Thanks for sharing.  Here are mine:

        DB985DF9-871D-4180-8CF9-320FE50B51BFA598B768-054D-4FC9-A6CA-AB484F0EB269

        The first one is the cotton from the Denting warp, then the linen done in pattern and finally the linen with 30/2 silk in Old Man’s Beard.  My favourite is the linen/silk scarf!

          Thanks for your nice comments.  As a beginner I am learning so much!

            Finally finished this warp – 2 samples at 18 epi/ppi, Jagger merino scarf woven at 12 epi/ppi then fulled, and 20/2 silk scarf woven at 16 epi/ppi with all yellow and orange warp threads cut out.

              I love this scarf!  I wove it with the Jagger Merino as Jane suggested.  I felted it and it went from 26” wide to 18” wide and resulted in a beautiful fabric.  I also did 2 samples at 18 epi – one as per pattern, second with natural Boucle stripes.  I did 2 large Boucle towels with the 12 epi warp.  Finally, I just used up the end of my warp with yellow 2/8 cotton – nice colours.

                Those are great!  I love seeing the different things everyone can do with the same warp.

                    Thanks Ginette.  I used the 20/2 Bombay Silk for the plaid scarf and the Bambu for the yellow scarf.

                      Finally finished this warp.  I have 7 napkins and a beautiful Bambu scarf.  I added a couple of these little bathroom shelves to my craft room to hang and stack my items.  I am looking forward to filling them up!

                        Beth, those towels are great!  So different with different colour choices.

                          I am still having fun weaving boucle towels, so there are a few.  I tried a silk scarf this time.  I don’t love it, but I still think it’s kind of cool.  I am definitely trying more things than I ever would have attempted on my own.  I am still a beginner, but am becoming a more confident beginner by being a part of this guild.

                            Finally finished this set.  I did my sample according to the instructions.  I rethreaded to 15 epi and did 5 towels in boucle.  I did one towel with cleft weaving for the blue and pink at the bottom, which made a really soft, absorbent looking fabric.  I did my final one with some dk acrylic baby yarn, just for fun.

                                My thread was getting tangled in the shoeboxes when I did multiple ends, so I built a little yarn rack.  It’s based on a picture of one made by LeClerc.  I am really happy with it.  The weaving is so much fun so far.  I feel like a magician with all of the patterning.

                                  Thanks everyone for posting your projects!  It’s so inspiring to see all of the different things people are making on the same warp!  I love the project bag.

                                  I am so proud to have finished mine.  I did five little towels and then I changed the sett and did two large towels.  One is with boucle, the other alternates the 2/8 cotton and boucle.  I like them both.  I did a little one at the end with just boucle.  I also made a bench seat cushion using a baby acrylic yarn that made a really soft piece of cloth.

                                  Since I am a beginner, I learned so much.  I learned about using Fibonacci.  I learned how to fix broken warp threads (not because I wanted to!).  I learned how to fix skipped stitches.  I washed and dried my samples in the machine and then hemmed them.  There are still a few mistakes, but overall I am pretty thrilled with the results!  I used an 8 yard warp and decided not to change my zinger colour, though I feel confident that I could if I really wanted to.  Looking forward to the next sample.  So much fun!

                                  Here are some pictures:
