I’m back on my weaving tangent, though I’m not even finished with my woman cave yet. This is how my Attention Deficit works. I was given a link quite a while ago (http://www.cs.arizona.edu/patterns/weaving/index.html). That tab has been sitting there, open, this entire time. I finally decided to go through all the links, download what I wanted, then finally close it.
Well, imagine my surprise when I found these .pdfs! It’s Weaving 101, with instructions for building a full-sized loom, tablets, board looms, and table top looms! Not just that but exactly how to use them! I’m thrilled (and properly distracted from finishing my cave). Actually, I have hung my embroidery hoops on the wall and thought, “You know, I could do the same for the tablets I was given and even make some small frames and store them on the walls, too.” That one thought gave me permission to embrace this tangent again. 🙂
These were all written by Luther Hooper and are a fantastic resource for anyone to have (who is interested in this or think they may be in the future). To save these to your computer, right-click on the links below, click “Save Link As” and choose where you would like it saved on your computer. I hope you enjoy these as much as I am!
Well, a friend mentioned that she weaves on potholder looms and then said something about getting a 3-pin loom. I, obviously, had no idea what she was talking about so I looked it up and thought I should share this with you. I like how small these are, you could use leftover yarns, and it takes no time to finish each square. When I get my woman cave (son’s moving out and his room will become my woman cave with my weights, new weight machine and all my sewing/yarn/crafty items … no wood working, though. That stays in the garage).
And this video is how to weave with yarn on a potholder loom:
