More than one kind of weaving

has made progress...

The loom is not only threaded, but enough fabrics has been woven to reach and wrap around the cloth beam (only once, but it's still progress), and in between other projects, I managed to weave this nice little kit basket.


Somehow I forgot to blog my larger tote basket (noticed I hadn't photographed it when I went to blog the new one), so here it is. I think the name of the pattern was Attic Quilt Basket, and although I had expected it to be larger (yes, it did have measurements, but you know how it goes - it's hard to imagine a size), but it has ended up being the perfect size to tote my larger projects in, and it fits on the floor, between the front and back car seats!

The baskets turned out beautiful as well as the loom weaving. I wove a basket similar to the quilt basket. Mine is a Judith Richmond pattern and uss a wooden base. You will find the size you wove to be very handy. Thanks for sharing the photos.

Thank you all for the compliments!!!

Nancy, I think the one by Judith Richmond is the one that I've made twice, with different wooden bases, but the handle design has been changed, and it is no longer curved where it is connected to the base, and my friends and I changed the weaving pattern on the sides. They were pictured in two different blog posts: http://lamdes.blogspot.com/2010/05/baskets.html and http://lamdes.blogspot.com/2010/01/busy-busy.html .
