I absolutely love history.
I absolutely love weaving.
I absolutely love overshot.
So what fun could I have combining my loves?
I took The Best of Weaver’s: Overshot is Hot! and decided to give a try at the miniature of Lee’s Surrender last year. This is an old pattern that is for a coverlet, but this article has reduced it to a smaller scale so it was easier to use for something only scarf size. I had some 10/2 dark blue cotton and some beautiful space-dyed 8/2 cotton. So taking the two and using the blue for warp and the space-dyed for pattern weft, I was off with a beautiful combination of pattern and color.
I will admit it is still in its just off the loom state. I need to fix up the ends nicely and decide what to do with it but I still love to take it out and just stare at the color and pattern.
This was my second attempt at overshot and I am getting better with each warp I put on the loom.
