Sooo I wanna learn to weave now. haha XD I had a quick question though and thought I would start here. I did a search for what I wanna ask and didn't find anything so if I have missed my answers sorry... >.<; lol I've recently started spinning my own yarn and now want to learn to weave stuff with it but I so can't afford a weaving loom! Is there any way I could build my own loom? I would like to have a look big enough to maybe make a shawl on. I'm so envious right now of all you loom owning people! lol Thanks for any help you can give me.

A simple frame (non heddle) loom is easy to make, just a few pieces of lumber a little larger than you want your finished piece and finishing nails to hold your warp.

I know there are plans in cyber space for making your own harness loom.
