21  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Discussion and Questions / Re: The lesser of the two weavers... on: July 10, 2007 08:21:33 AM
I got my 12 inch square loom from Hazel Rose looms (http://www.hazelroselooms.com/) and love it!  You can weave with a continuous loop method which means you don't have to warp the loom first.  I'm in  a yahoo group that is full of fantastic info for making your own tri or square loom and how to weave with them.  They would make great washcloths.  (PM me if you're interested in the yahoo group)

I don't have pics yet but today my son woke me up begging to be allowed to spin.  So today was his first day as a spinner.  I pulled out the Spunky FOTM from last October.  It was called Monster Mash and with a name like that, what 7yo boy could refuse.  He and both his sisters each got a turn helping me spin (they did most of the drafting and I kept the the wheel turning) about 2oz, then I spun up the other half and plied them together.  Since I can't find my noddy anywhere, I have no idea what kind of yardage we got but I did wind it into a ball and started knitting a hat with it (the boy is a total hat freak so that's what he wanted).  The kids spent the rest of the day looking at roving deciding what they are going to spin tomorrow Smiley   I did take pics of the ball so hope to share them tomorrow.

Love, love, love it!

I was never a big fan of variegated yarn until the first time I wove with it.  Now I love it for all my fiber-y obsessions. 

What sort of loom did you use?  I wove a short scarf in a day once but that was on a rigid heddle loom so not all that hard to warp and I totally left the fringing for the next day.  You are totally my "in a day" hero!  Smiley

Now I'm off to look for Cider Moon yarn, cause if the "junk" looks that good, I need me some of that!  Smiley

Congrats on the awesome scarf!

Wow, if I set a personal goal, it would be more like 8 oz for the entire tour :p

Actually, my personal goal is just to really try and find the time to spin every day.

sounds like my goal Smiley

Congrats on the great looking yarn!  I think that framing it sounds like a fantastic idea.  What a beautiful piece of artwork!

well, of course, I can't find a tape measure to save my life this morning to measure the full width of the loom  Roll Eyes  (darn kids  Wink

I have woven some baby blankets 31 inches wide.  There was still a few more slots, so you can get very close to a 32 inch piece of fabric (the loom is wider than the 32" but I'm not sure exactly how wide due to that ever elusive tape measure, as soon as I find the darn thing, I'll measure it for you)

You will love the harp!  at least I love mine Wink

I would love to try this, but I am an amazingly slow spinner...I might be able to get a single skein done for the whole month.  Sad  Oh how I wish for a wheel.....

One skein for the whole month is no problem!!! 

and, as for buying more fiber?  Now's the perfect time cause I can tell the hubby "it's for the Tour!"  Smiley

Thank you, although I didn't mean that one (=each individual forum). But for ALL forums. There was one, way at the bottom (where the lastest post thing is) but now it's gone???

I'd love to be able to mark the whole forum read again, too.

Must go explore more now Smiley
