A Week in Weaving

Well, made the final plunge into the fiber world!! You can now add "weaving" to knitting, spinning, dying fiber and crocheting. I am now a true fiber-holic. I purchased and received my loom last week. I am a proud owner of a 25" Schacht Flip Rigid Heddle Loom with the stand.


I have actually created woven items which are recognizable. Who knew that weaving would actually make me happy. Weaving on this loom is not like weaving "pot holders" in grade school. I will admit, I am looking forward to adventurous weaving escapades.Here are some pictures of what I have accomplished so far. Just remember, I am still learning-be gentle. A scarf:

My current WIP


I'll keep you posted about my fiber journey. Til next time........

  1. Love what you have done, that scarf is beautiful. I have thought about weaving, but my husband said there is no way that I can get any other crafts in my little craft room. Who knows, Ithink there is a square inch of unused space that is calling a weaving machine. HA HA.
