Ange: Overshot Runners
My first Overshot projects! Three runners from Janet Dawson’s Overshot class.
Gudrun: The Gang is Back — Woven Dolls
“The Gang” was first described in Weaver’s No 5, 1989. Members of the Gang have been seen at times, here are some from Mary Anderson’s collection
The weaving is a 4H doubleweave woven in the form of tubes. The shuttle goes either all the way across or is pulled out in the middle or sides to form legs and arms. The dolls quickly develop personality through their proportions, clothing, and embellishments. They do surprise you.
John: Woven Towels
I’m taking an online weaving course by Joanne Hall, a well-known weaving teacher who works for Glimakra. It’s called Countermarch at Home, teaching people who are new to countermarch looms how to get the best results from their loom. I just started weaving a set of towels (for the exchange). The draft for the towel is the one that I created a few months ago by decoding a towel that Gudrun got from a friend many years ago. The class is great. My technique with my countermarch loom has improved quite a bit. Joanne is teaching a course in draw loom weaving in February.

Marjorie: Sprang Braided Pouch
This project is a 2-2 Sprang braided twill phone pouch. I don’t know what the yarn is specifically for the body but that it’s wool. The other yarn is Tahki Tandem. The button is from Buttons! By Linda Sicard.
