I ordered a loom back at the beginning of September…birthday money that I’d planned to spend on a coat but got seduced by the lure of the looms at Loom and Spindle!
I have wanted to learn to weave for ages but it always seemed to be bumped to the bottom of the list. So, the other night, I unpackaged the loom and got out the wool I had gathered.
There’s something about the newness and freshness of a new skill.
And I found it so therapeutic when I got going.
The slowness of weaving the shed stick into the warp.
Pushing the weft down with the weaving comb.
Working out how to thread through the tassels.
It’s definitely the start of a process and I’m hoping to enjoy creating some woven wall hangings.
Will post this one when I’m done!
I’d love to hear from you if you’ve done some weaving or learned a new skill!
Check out my Pinterest board for some weaving ideas and go see Loom and Spindle for techniques and tutorials.
