But more about that tomorrow. Today- the looms (and this is not all of them- a couple of the pictures came out too fuzzy, and I'm sure I missed a few). In addition to knitters and crocheters, and at least a dozen spinning wheels (including my own), and lots of good food, there were looms. Everywhere, looms. Which was pretty intoxicating to a new weaver.
Connie P had a little vintage 4-harness table loom. It's all metal, and look at the amazing towel/runner she's weaving!
Kelly was using Kauni to weave a lacy shawl on this triangle loom.
Connie H spent the day warping this huge 8-harness floor loom. Tomorrow, I'll show you how she did that, and what she makes. Prepare to be blown away.Betty wove on this teeny little Weave-it loom (it's about 2" square).
Ashford Knitters Loom- I am currently lusting for this exact loom, but I am being good and learning the ins and outs of my own little loom first. I deserve a prize because the loom was right there, in front of me all day, on sale... and still I did not buy it.
Jill wove an amazing band on this inkle loom.
I believe this is a also an Ashford Rigid Heddle Loom- a fairly wide one- at least 24". It was also on sale, and I did not buy it.Beka Child/Beginner loom. I finished weaving the pre-warped portion, and with the advice of the wonderful weavers, I was able to warp it with my handspun cotton all by myself. Which I will show you tomorrow, along with pictures of the wonderful Weavers, and the fun we had!
