Crazyshot!-Creative Overshot Weaving on the Rigid Heddle Loom
About this deal
I tend to get fairly obsessive about one craft at a time. I’m passionate about learning as much as possible and experimenting with all the different ways I can express myself with it.
I have some of Myra Wood’s previous books on knitting and crochet and have gained much inspiration from them. After reading your interview with Myra I will be taking your class on Branoe very soon.I love weaving on a variety of looms. But to explore all the possibilities of my rigid heddle looms is my favorite thing. Myra’s technique is absolutely fascinating! I would love to have this book and learn and dive into these colors and patterns.
I was so inspired by a class on Branoe weaving, a Russian variation, by Kelly Casanova. I started a deep dive into finding out as much as I could about it and came up sorely short of any more real instruction. There was very little information other than samples and basic history of supplementary-weft techniques from around the world. I wonder if this book Crazy Shot will be released in Kindle format at some point. Beautiful designs that would help me feel fully enabled. Watch out world. 🙂Myra has just released a wonderful new weaving book that I am so excited to tell you about – “Crazyshot! Creative Overshot Weaving on the Rigid Heddle Loom”. “Crazyshot” is creative overshot weaving for the rigid heddle with bold patterns and colours. Rigid heddle weavers looking to go beyond plain weave have a wonderful new resource with CrazyShot!, a new book by Myra Wood. Try this overshot weaving technique with just-beyond-beginner weaving skills.
exceptions. Users that break this rule are IP banned for a first offense without warning. ZERO TOLERANCE.For knitters and crocheters who are less familiar with weaving, what makes this method so appealing? Can I use my stash yarn? My rigid heddle sat neglected while I spent most of my time on my floor loom. I have been asked many times if I was interested in selling it. I couldn’t do that, my husband bought it for me as a Christmas present, However it still sat naked and neglected. Finally I decided enough was enough. I was done with overthinking (talking myself out of projects), I warped up my RH with some handspun and millspun yarn. I am almost finished weaving a lace top/shawl using your garden path scarf directions. I have no idea if it will work out to what I envisioned, but I’m happy that I took the plunge and started weaving on my little loom again. I know you always have something new and exciting in your artistic mind. Can you give us a hint of the New Next Thing?
