Another "toy"



I'm not sure how or when I got bitten by the weaving bug-but I did. I know I started checking groups on Ravelry and ran into the Saori weaving group. I'm so smitten with this style of weaving. Its totally arsty and free form and just for me. Well, I was telling my BFF Carol all about wanting to get a loom but would have to start saving my pennies when she asked if I'd like to buy her loom that she bought a few years back but never put it to use. I didn't hesitate to yell-YES! So, I now am the proud owner of a new-to-me Harrisville 36"/4 shaft floor loom. I spent a day cleaning her up and setting her up-I only cussed a few times. It took another two evenings to figure out how to warp it-and then I got started on a really simple scarf. I'm having a blast with it. The only problem is the size-who needs a living room? Right? Things got sort of squished together-but I'm still happy. And of course I'm into naming my fiberdance toys-so meet---Isabella.

  2. HOORAY!

    Major loom envy going on here. My husband is totally supportive of me weaving but is hesitant about a floor loom because it will require us to remove a couch in the living room...but it's worth it.

    Looking forward to seeing what you create.

  4. I have one that a friend loaned me. It's also taking up space in the living room.

    Looking forward to seeing your future projects.

    Happy Fiber Arts Friday!
