Weaving Progress Report

Weaving | Red Circle Crafts

You may recall that I made my first loom almost a year ago. Since then I've been weaving for friends and family. And slowly covering a wall with the ones I keep for myself.

This summer I made a second loom, larger and the weft closer together. It means I can create more precise patterns, but it takes so much longer to weave something the same size. So I may need to create heddle rods and leashes (like these). I feel like I'm still so new to this whole thing, but it's incredibly soothing to spend my evenings weaving and decompressing. Keeps my hands busy, but attention to spare for J while he's making dinner.

Some of the weavings I've made recently include some adorably small ones, and a necklace I'm quite fond of. I think my next weavings will be a set of coasters.

  1. Love the black & white one with the fluffy clouds! I can see the difference in the weavings on the new loom.
