I frequently take a look at the website of Ineke Elsinga. Visiting I noticed a pattern called ”walking waffle’ (literally translated from Dutch language’).  Wow this…I wanted to have. I like optic illusions in weaving. Buying the pattern was easy done.
The warp is as straight as it always is (we can’t change that :-)), but every weft changes 70 times and then you start with the first weft again. The waffle really walks 🙂
When I took it of my loom and washed the cloth, I was so happy. It was beautiful.

wandelende wafelI almost regretted it was woven for lining a bag from the grocery store.
Then I had to use my pair of scissors 🙁  I warn you!!! Sewing was a hell of a job!!
