My first project on my first loom

This is the first blanket that I ever wove.

My first blanket

I had just gotten my new loom and needed to make something. I had this yarn around to knit a sweater, but the yarn had been sitting around for a few years and still was not made. I did a few calculations and figured out that there was enough for this throw.

The warp is a superwash wool (the rose and the navy) and a rayon/wool blend (the variegated.) The warp is the same rose superwash wool that is used in the warp.

Below is a close up view of the weave structure. It is a simple plain weave. This pattern requires 2 harnesses, and the sett is 8 e.p.i.
