I’ve been a busy fellow the past week and a half. I was in Minnesota last week, and I finally finished this scarf I stared months ago. (Yes, I brought my loom on vacation.) I also wove another scarf, and I’ll take pictures of that later this week when I get around to unpacking it. This is one of the scarves I brought with me to the Textile center in Minneapolis, and maybe, just maybe, I’ll be teaching a class on it next year… We’ll see!

Wish me luck!

I Got An Ashford Loom!

25 Apr

I got an Ashford 24″ Rigid Heddle Loom, and yes, it’s amazing!

I’ve always been interested in looms. Ever since I was a little kid in boy scouts, I can remember going to an old farm house that had a giant floor loom, and being amazed by it. Now that I’m a 20-something, I’m even more astounded by them! I started out with this Ashford 24″, and I can already see myself investing in a floor loom… One of these days!

I’ve been weaving this scarf, and I just love it! It actually goes by rather quickly. I’m almost done with it already. I used all sorts of funky yarn. I even made some from strips of quilting fabric, and some from t-shirts, and old hats. It’s quite the textured hot mess you assume it would be, but I love it! I’m so excited to finish it off, and start work on my next project… A Rug!
