Weekend project: Use trio of triangle looms I impulse purchased back in June of last year because I had to have them and needed them now so I could finally say I used them. 😦
I used them! They were still in their original packaging and had that freshly laser beamed smell.
I decided the larger triangle would be a stand alone piece and the medium and small triangles would be displayed together. For the larger triangle I used yarn in dark blue and blushes; for the other two I decided to go with more vibrant colors.
I like using one yarn in different ways to add texture and dimension to my pieces. It also prevents me from buying too many types of yarn in the same color. For the large triangle I used four types of yarn/material; I added braids and wove multiple strands at a time to add some variation.
Weavings are great because you can use yarn scraps to create your pieces, too. For the triangle duo I simply dug into my yarn stash and picked out a color palette that spoke to me.
Since I was making a duo of triangles, it seemed fitting to leave some blank space in the small triangle so yarn could peek through from the medium triangle (if I choose to display them one in front of the other). The warp strings actually look really good on their own.
Unlike looms I’m accustomed to working with where you remove the weaving from the loom and hang it on a stick of sorts, these looms serve as frames for your weavings. I’m into it! It makes the weaving have a more polished and sophisticated look.
Super excited to display these!
In case you need these, too: These looms are from Sonora Handmade in collaboration with Hello Hydrangea and Midnight Weave co.
I adore these! Such a cute idea. They came out beautifully.
