I acquired this table top loom late last summer and have finally begun to use it. A friend of my through my day job asked me if I would be interest in a loom that was at her daughter's high school, she had told me that the current art teacher had never used it and she had been their for 17 years. I told my friend that I would take it if they wanted to get rid of it, knowing from past experience that most times parts are missing.
Well to my surprise it is complete. Just needing one wing nut and some tlc.
It has a label on it that says "Dryad Leicester" and the wood has been stamped "made in England".
....anyway I have spun up some beautiful shetland wool, added a little glitz to some of it and decided to weave it and make a scarf to offer for sale at one of the festivals I demo at.
I had purchased a book, "Weaving made easy" by, Liz Gipson. Some basic instruction, projects and pictures.
So off I go ....
Well it only took me until I was almost finished with the scarf to realize that I should have dressed the loom over the wooden beam in the front and back of the loom....duh. next time...
I will definitely do some weaving again. I think I may try some basic kitchen towels with cotton. I would really like some good cotton towels.......next project?
