Hi all!

I bought on eBay a very cheap table loom with floor legs, and I tried to do something.
I followed a draft design from Handweaving.net, that have a lot of free drafts.
So, I used a very strong wool for the warp, that took me 5 hours to do it, and then at least 7 hours of effective weaving.
the result is a very very heavy wool textile with a nice pattern.
here the show:

the pattern

a glimpse of the right side\wrong side

that's all!


The textile measures  60 cm width and 160 cm length

Enjoy!

Bye bye

oh that is gorgeous! beautiful contrasting colours! love it!
I always like to put several metres of warp on my looms, enough to play around with, do a project, get a large amount of weaving done before I have to cut it off. Saves alot of time with the threading up process!
