Swedish Weaving is such a simple & relaxing form of needle work that I find it hard to resist. It's also a nice craft to take where sewing machines can't go. The weaving is done by picking up the vertical threads, called floats, on the front of the fabric so the stitching does not show on the back.
While waiting to find the perfect yarn to compliment my turquoise monks cloth my neighbor showed me her Swedish Weaving project using brown monks cloth with misty taupe yarn. It was so exotic looking I had to start my own project with these colors. The chocolate brown and misty taupe complement either other perfectly.
In the meanwhile I am still searching for the perfect color yarn to go with my bright turquoise - I'm envisioning tangerine with yellow or red.
