finer weft threads (finer than the warp thread) offer a finer, denser looking weave; where the warp and weft threads are of similar thickness you can achieve a more chequered effect; I've also woven over-and-under two warp threads, this makes for a quicker weave, you can alternate with the regular one-thread-at-a-time.
above with the threads sticking out, below all tidied up; there are some knots on the back where I tied two different strands together
I noticed here (on the left photo below) that if the threads are of similar thickness where you weave one over/one under, you still see the warp, where you weave two over/two under you don't see the warp thread, food for thought.
hanging in space and against a background; on one side the warps threads had a loose end in the middle, where I started the warp, this thread I decided to use to attach the button; at the other end the loose thread was on one side and after having knotted two together I was left with one which I then wove back and forth once more just above the knots and then tied off on it's own like the others, creating a fringe
I love my cups of tea and very often I enjoy a cup of Yogi tea, you know the ones, with the messages on the tea bag tags......well today the message was especially uplifting and energizing; check it out:
