Weaving has always fascinated me. Watching the beautiful patterns emerge as a weaver works away … there is just something about it that is inherently magical.
Today, I was lucky enough to receive a table loom from a friend. How awesome is that! I am over the moon excited and have been grinning all afternoon.
The loom is over 60 years old, is handmade, and I haven’t the faintest idea how to use it yet but I am determined to learn. In fact, I have plans for after the kiddos go to bed for the night, to do some searching and watch a few YouTube videos to get me acquainted with parts of the loom and start learning some of the terminology. I *might* have already requested some textiles books from the library this afternoon that should help me along nicely with this as well. :-)
My daydream is to one day weave pretty things with my own handspun so I certainly have my work cut out for me to get to that point but I’m game!
Do you have crafty daydreams that you are working your way toward? I’d love to hear all about them!
