Weaving, interrupted

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)

Stroller Blanket?

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.

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
