Beginner's Weaving

If you've been reading my blog for a while, or checked out the labels on the right, you probably already know that I can't seem to limit myself to any one media, even though my business is making quilt patterns, and other quilts.

I purchased an inkle loom recently, since I think it would be nice to make one of a kind straps for the tote bags and purses I make (of course they can also be used for belts). Below is my first weaving on the inkle loom, which was done with cotton yarn:

And here is my second, this one woven with Cottolin yarn:

I also have a Knitter's Loom for larger projects, like this shawl. I used rayon for the warp, and a lumpy, bumpy, art yarn for the weft. The fringe still needs to be trimmed, but I'm happy with it!

Here's a closer view:

I really like the blue and yellow one, Lynn. That kind of loom seems more practical than the one that takes up much of a room!
