So here is my loom, 15" wide
Heddle bars, in 2 sizes
than this loom, which was simply too basic, my daughter is playing with it to see if it's what she would use. I have a small table I can attach the loom to for weaving, I don't want to put it on out dining room table as we use it often. Once I am happy with my weaving and feel this is the right loom, I can buy a stand for it, which would make using and storing it better. The site sells a fabric bag for storage, but at £65 I know I can make one just as good much cheaper. I know I can't have a much bigger loom, I simply do not have the space for it, so my hope is this will fulfill my needs. I have seen looms using two heddle bars at once, this model does not have the attachment, but hopefully once I can workout what I need, hubby will make the two small brackets to hold them together.
I want to make a scarf, but for my 1st run I will use the yarn provided and make a sample, ensuring the edges are tidy, before threading the yard for a long scarf.
I am out for most of today (Thursday), so my plan is to spend time weaving Friday, and over the weekend, I would like to be confident by next weekend when my sister is visiting, I know she will want to play.
There are weaving classes for all levels, locally, but I am hoping I can manage without the extra expense, but it's good to know if I can't work my way to a level I want.
It's exciting, I have not done any real weaving since school, I am trying to stay realistic on what I can do, it's so easy to get carried away.
