What a lovely work ! Is your inkle loom home-made ? I'd like to build one. I am about to build a warping board, so I was thinking I could do both at the same time...
Yes,yes it is Grin

Card Weaving on an Inkle loom?  What an awesome idea!!  I would imagine that it was much easier to keep the tension consistent!!

I agree! I've wanted to try card weaving, but was worried about the tension. Now, I may have to figure out how to build that inkle loom I've always wanted!

It looks great! Warping can be such a hassle. I really want to take card weaving up again, was it difficult to make your own loom?

Wow, what a beautiful band, your weaving is amazing, and the diamond pattern looks great. Is it really a bit threedimensional?. I love card weaving (and I don't like to warp either Smiley ). Thanks for posting this! Building and using this loom, you are my card weaving hero!
You must be an experienced weaver, so where is the rest? Smiley Post your other bands too! Please please! Smiley

shaints, thanks for the information about the guarda pampa, I love to learn about weaving from the Americas! I was hoping for a lot of things like these on craftster.

craftADDchick: I weave without a loom, and I don't find it too hard to keep the tension. With "normal" band weaving, I don't do so well without a loom, but with card weaving, the whole band is much tighter and holds the tension well. It almost feels like the band wants to be woven. Smiley Try it! Smiley

Ruby Copperhead- Thanks for the encouragement! I have a book on card weaving that I borrowed from the art teacher at school, but I just haven't had a chance to try it out. I need to pick up the right weaving material, and when I'm at the store, I never remember what it is I should buy. Would embroidery floss work for a small band?

You can use all kinds of materials. For your first band, I recommend a durable material, because you might sometimes want to unweave and reweave a part, and that stresses the yarn. Cotton works fine, for example.
On the other hand, I also recommend you to use a yarn that you like the touch of. The more fun you have weaving your bands, the better. That's why I don't use cotton that often, and rather go for wool. Wool is also more dynamic when it comes to holding tension. I did my first band in wool, but I don't recommend it as a beginner's yarn. It depends a lot on the quality of your wool.
I also hoarded cotton embroidery floss for card weaving because of the shining colors Smiley but I haven't tried it yet. I guess it'll make very nice bands.
