8/2 cotton woven on an 8 shaft loom.
24 ends per inch, 10/2 bamboo for warp and weft. 4 shaft loom.
A lightweight scarf made on the small rigid heddle loom.
Trying some different dish towel patterns on the 8 shaft loom. Here is towel 1 in progress.
Sometimes your loom needs a few extras, either purchased or homemade. I am posting four DIY projects that have worked well for my Ashford table loom: a shuttle race, castle lights, a weaving temple, and warp weights.
Interrupted weaving to make a few cloth face masks for friends and neighbors. My weaving skills have far outpaced my sewing skills, but they will do the job. Started out on my Janome sewing machine but it developed a problem that requires a repai service, so I had to finish them on my old singer (previously owned by my grandmother)
This little blanket made on my 8 shaft table loom has a great feel, though it is much smaller than originally planned. I used ‘mallo’ cotton from Gist Yarn & Fiber, and it has a wonderful hand at 16 epi. I hope to make a larger one when they have more of this yarn available.
Here is the finished scarf! The new loom is a joy to weave on. 8 shaft point twill, 10 epi, 7.5” x 69”
This loom was a Craig’s list find. It is about ten years old and is in good shape. I did a lot of cleanup, replaced the bungy cords on the beater, and turned a couple of parts the right way around! Just started my first project and am already convinced this loom is a joy
