Ahahah... get it?



Anyway.  I've been wanting to pick up weaving for awhile.  I haven't been in a hurry for it because there was nothing I could think of that I'd want to make.  But now I know! I want to make dish/wash cloths and the sort.   I've been knitting them a bit, but thought it would be fun to weave them also, especially for charitable projects.

I started poking around here, stabbed around in Google a bit, and I an so.  incredibly.  lost.

I'm flusterclucked, so help? I know there's a million other "getting started" threads, but those were loosing me too.

So here's the snitch: I have oodles of peaches and cream cotton yarn.

I have not a penny to my name.

I do have tools, a vague ability to use them, a dear roommie that I can sometimes bribe to help me especially if I'm over there grunting like the helpless female he must think I am sometimes :-p  and... stuff laying around.

The dishcloths I have in mind are even sided squares, but I reckon it don't matter.

Which 1 of a million different weaving looms would you reccomend I make? (I can probably find howtouseit directions from that point on)

(Oh, prior experience was from when I was a wee lass and using those fabric loops with the plastic pegged square.)

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)

Hiya Chipper!  Now those look easy enough to make and like they'll get the job done.  I'd love to join the Yahoo group.  Smiley
