Never underestimate the
determination of a
somewhat obsessive craftster...
Warp is crochet cotton and weft is some Ingeo I dyed and spun (not Ingeo roving, but Ingeo stuffing from Walmart....
I've been so inspired/obsessed with many of the beautiful weaving projects I've been seeing and have been looking at loom prices. Then I think to myself "You don't really need to weave" as I can't justify another large-ish craft equipment purchase (right now)(haha).
A couple of days ago, this idea came to me fully formed while at work. Then I had to wait (agonizing!) until I could get to Rona (CDN handyman store).
10' of 1" PVC pipe, 8 elbows, 2 T's and $22.59 later... (and a lot of figuring things out as I went...)
Considering I have never seen a loom in person, it works pretty well! I need to make (or purchase) a better heddle, as the one I made is not rigid enough and has a couple of spots where the warp catches.
