Weavers I'm following on Instagram

Weavings | Red Circle Crafts

After I made myself a lap loom at the end of August, I did in fact get bitten by the weaving bug. It's a real thing. Everyone I know that weaves (a surprising lot, honestly) nod their head knowingly when I say that I'm addicted.

I've posted some work in progress shots on Instagram of weavings I made. Most of them were given away for Christmas presents, as I predicted.

One of the things I've noticed though is that pictures of weavings attract weavers. Just from sharing my own projects I've picked up some great people to follow. Here are three of my favorites.

Isn't that one from agateandelm amazing! I'm dying to try out that technique; I've never seen anything like it. Although I think I'd like to get a little better at making diamond shapes first.

One of the best things about following weavers on Instagram is seeing in process shots, different looms and tools people use, and, my favorite, the backs of weavings.
