More Swedish Weaving

As I mentioned in my last post about swedish weaving, my grandma makes afghans with it. In fact, she made a whole lot of them (at least twenty, maybe more). I thought I’d show photos of a few of them today.

Today I’m posting closeups of three of them. Be sure to take a look at the edges – these are finished in three different ways. One has a crocheted edge, one has a running stitch hem, and the last has a fringe.

    The afghans are lovely! What did she use for the fringe? Is it another thread (do I se a sheen like rayon?) or is it from the (self fabric) raveled edge?

      I believe it’s the fabric with a raveled edge. I think the sheen is just from the flash – the lighting was unfortunately not that great when I took the photos.
