My journey into the world of weaving


A day in the life of Looms 2012

I had almost forgotten this yearly posting that Meg has encouraged and fostered in the weaving community.

I don’t see a whole lot of difference from my post of last year. I did complete the doubleweave project successfully and the blanket now keeps my mom cozy warm for her naps.

I have some handspun on my Tools of the Trade loom:


and my Norwood sits ready:


I am also still spinning out of control. Currently, I have superwash merino with tussah silk on my wheel:


I look forward to another doubleweave project and lots of handspun weaving too! I still have a lot of fiber stash for spinning. But I am going to purchase some more for weaving.


My birthday loom!

Today is my birthday and I bought the loom! Half of it is in my home and the other half is at my mother’s until next weekend.

It is beautiful. It seems to be very sturdy and well built. My sister and I met at the seller’s home and we spent a very nice hour and a half plus with Marianne, Gar, and Miriam. Lots of commonality, some connections with people, and just a general sense of ease and friendship.

The loom itself was dismantled and carried out to our cars. I was so happy that it could come home with me! at least most of it.

Pictures will follow. I have to do a certain amount of furniture moving to make a place for it. It takes the place of my 32″ Tools of the Trade which will go upstairs in our bedroom which will displace a bureau which…. You get the idea!

So now I own three looms! inclusive of a table loom.
