This is an old Navajo weave done at an angle. It usually creates a scalloped edge, but for some reason mine stayed pretty consistently straight. I think it has to do with the fact that for so many years I worked so hard at NOT having scalloping on my edge/selvedge. I think I, simply out of habit worked too hard in this case, to keep my tension consistent. LOL
I absolutely love the colors, they are very Spring like. Unfortunately, until I was already well into the weaving I had thought this was cotton yarn. My mistake, the white is cotton, but the green and pink are 100% acrylic. Way tooooooo spongey for my liking. Makes great throw blankets, not such great tapestry weaving.
It was a learning process and while I found the tapestry weaving on a frame loom much easier on my body than the backstrap has been since the car accident, I bored with it quickly. I just can't seem to get inspired to weave. But I do like it for a little table topper!
