Trying some different dish towel patterns on the 8 shaft loom. Here is towel 1 in progress.
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
