My journey into the world of weaving

New weaving equipment!

Leave a comment

I was going to have a morning of weaving but then I got wind through our NOBO Guild web site that someone was selling used weaving equipment! Included were several weaving benches. I needed one! I have two looms and one bench between the two of them! So I called the person and went right there. She has everything in her basement – looks like a weaving warehouse!

I bought the Leclerc loom bench plus some llama/leicester fiber. The bench is now with my Norwood; the other bench (actually a piano bench) will be with my Tools.

The other equipment I got this week was from the Purple Fleece. One of my sisters had given me a gift certificate so I bought my first temple! It’s a Louet brand. I have not used it yet but most certainly will with my next project the blanket. I could have used it with this current project but I am almost done.

I have begun to warp the blanket. So I do hope this weekend to finish the towels, get the warp ready for the blanket, and maybe even begin to dress the loom!
