Not Weaving

 

It’s hard to weave when your loom is folded up. The loom is waiting to be moved out of the room while the carpet padding is replaced. Then the existing carpet will be re-laid and cleaned. It has been a very unproductive time.

In desperation I dusted off the inkle loom and warped it. It had been a while so the 1st attempt at warping I cut off and threw away. It felt good to do something with my hands, while the construction people are in the house. About 1 1/2 yards of 1/2 inch wide trim this made. The trim is really too wide for loops on towels.

So I put a longer warp on the inkle and am weaving a narrow trim 5/16 inches wide. This should work on future towels. when finished there will be 2 1/2 yds, maybe a little more.

My large loom is open and back to its designated place. A Shadow weave towel warp is being threaded. The best part is our reconstruction is almost complete.

  2. Any kind of construction in your house makes it hard to be creative, but it’s worth it in the end.
