For six months or more, I had been thinking about trying to weave a seamless blanket. The weaving width of my loom is 36″, but I had heard that you can set the loom up to weave a top and bottom joined on one side. So I looked at my inventory: blue, grey, white, wild raspberry, plum yarns in two ply that could be the warp. So I spun some matching singles while I read up on double-weave. Finally, I had to take the plunge. The warp is 4 yards long, and twice as many threads so it can weave a top and bottom. Four pounds of yarn!
