How funny you should ask this. I just finished binding a quilt that was monk's cloth woven with variegated yarn. The maker backed it with polar fleece and tied it, then hired me to put the binding on. It was very warm on my lap!

Learned to do this when wintering in Fl. have made many afgans and lap blankets. Very easy just need to count a lot. We did ours with a pillow underneath which made it easier to put the needle through and not show on the back. Wish I had one to show gave them all away.

Love the swedish weaving as a hand project. I'm using working on one while traveling in the motorhome. I've done all different sizes and patterns. It's very easy just weaving yarn in and out, up and down. I love using varigated yarn for these. You can do patterns on either end of the through or through the whole throw. You work from the middle of your fabric to each side. A lot of people use a large needle to weave, but I found a large flat needle that is perfect for doing this.

Swedish huck is beautiful when done, very simple but designs are lovely. I have some pieces handed down by my Swedish grandmother. Good luck. Edie - the Svenska Flicka!!!!!!

My grandmother taught that to me when I was a kid along with tatting and embroidery. I haven't done any of it for over fifty years but it is nice to know it is still being done.

I have a good friend who has done many throws using this method, and they are stunning.
