Beaming this warp was slow going, but it’s on the loom and I’ve made a start on threading the heddles. I count and group my heddles before I start threading them to help minimize the risk for errors. I really don’t want to have to re-thread when there are so many ends involved! Before I did any of that though, I added 10 extra shafts and treadles (14 of each on the go now) and did the tie-up. There won’t be any progress for the next week: my parents are coming to visit. We live 1600km apart, so we have to make the most of the time we have together. . . . #wea#weaving #weavingprocess #sol#solvning #solv #heddles #threadingheddles #repweave #ripsväv #weaving #handweaving #väv #vävning #weven #weben #redandwhite #rödochvit #roodenwit #handmadeinsweden #öxabäck #hannieshantverk #handmadetextiles #candycanecolors

45 kilometers of yarn. Neatly divided into 4 warp chains of 628 threads each. Who knew you could get muscle ache from preparing a warp! Feeling all the working up and down the warping mill in the spot just above my knees. . . . #warp #varp #war#warpchain> #warpchain #varpfläta #varpflätor #varpa #warppreparation #repweave #ripsväv #thatsalotofyarn #wea#weavingprocess #weavingprep #weaving #handweaving #väv #vävning #weven #weben #redandwhite #rödochvit #roodenwit #handmadeinsweden #candycanecolors #polkagris #sufferingformyart #hannieshantverk

Thank you for all your responses to the rug I posted on Friday - I’m still smiling about them. Up next: red & white, because it is Q4 and that means a certain holiday is coming up... To be fair though, I’ve wanted to get this on the loom for ages. The yarn has been patiently waiting on the shelf since February. . . . #weaving #handweaving #väv #vävning #weven #weben #warppreparation #varpning #weavingprocess #weavingprep #redandwhite #rödochvit #roodenwit #repweave #ripsväv #candycanecolors #warpingmill #garnställning #handmadeinsweden #handmadetextiles #slowtextiles #startinganewproject #garnhusetkinna #hannieshantverk

I hand delivered this custom rag rug to its new home today! A lot of what I make goes to far away places, so it was really exciting to see the rug in its intended place and the owner’s smile as we put it down. (And I got treated to homemade soup too!). What makes this rug extra special is that it includes a lot of textiles that were used by the family I made it for (a t-shirt, a dress, a duvet cover, curtains...). All in all a lovely way to end the week! . . . #ragrug #trasmatta #voddenkleed #flickenteppich #customragrugs #handwerk #hantverk #slöjd #textilhantverk #somethingnewfromsomethingold #upcycledtextiles #recycledtextiles #weaving #handweaving #han#handwovenrug #handwoven #vä#vävning #väv #weven #weben #handweaver #slowtextiles #handvävdmatta #handmadetextiles #handmadeinsweden #friyay #blackyellowgrey #ilovemyjob #hannieshantverk

4.5m of rag rug off the loom! I think this is the longest rag rug I have woven so far. Once it has rested (it will shrink some now it is no longer under tension in the loom) and been hemmed, it should be roughly 4m long. . . . #ragrug #trasmatta #voddenkleed #flickenteppich #ragrugweaving #rosepath #rosepathweaving #rosengång #handwerk #hantverk #offtheloom #todayinmystudio #inmystudiotoday #somethingnewfromsomethingold #upcycledtextiles #recycledtextiles #handmadeinsweden #handweaving #weven #vä#vävning #väv #weaving #weben #hannieshantverk #blackyellowgrey

What a day! I, and I think the participants too, had a lot of fun doing the workshop together with @barbronina (check out her fantastic embroidery on the foreground in the first picture!). I’d definitely like to do that again. On top of that we were both interviewed (in front of an audience 🙀) by @juliaskott for her @rattavigt podcast. Thank you Julia, for guiding a podcast-novice like myself so gracefully through the process! Thank you @kulturutvecklinggavleborg for inviting me to take part in #kulturtinggavleborg2018 ! . . . #kulturutvecklinggävleborg #regiongävleborg #ovanåkerskommun #hannieshantverk

I’m preparing to give my first ever weaving workshop this Saturday at the county’s annual culture conference. I only have 45 mins with each group, so I wanted to put together something light and small the participants can take home to finish. Made small looms (10x15 cm) out of heavy cardboard, put thick cotton warp on and wound lots and lots of small balls of yarn. The wooden weaving needle works perfectly to push the weft together and can double as a hanging rod. Little bit nervous, but mostly just excited! . . . #kulturting2018 #kulturtinggavleborg2018 #kulturutvecklinggävleborg #regiongävleborg #miniloom #wea#weavingshop #vävning #väva #weaving #weven #weben #textilslöjd #cardboardloom #hannieshantverk #textilhantverk #textilecraft #weavingneedle
