So i bought this loom back in february for 250 dollars, which is completely a steal!!!

http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/1973100_0404.JPG

pretty, isnt he?

but he didn't come with a beater. or a reed. so i couldnt use it for months. and i was going to buy them but it would be like 150 dollars and i dont have that kinda monies. (the loom itself was more than my rent) so i let it sit and gather dust for a few months and kept trying to save up the money... but it seems in this republican run ecconomy i just keep getting poorer.... Undecided
so i decided i should just go ahead and do it myself!

here she is!



its not ferfect, but i only spent 17 dollars at home deopt. And it oly took me a day to makeits quite a bit of money i saved. And i can weave now!!!! i already started. its great.

P.S. I think weaving sholud have its own board. (or at least not be with crochet. i cannot think of two more opposite things....

waaaay cool!  I have a table top loom that my folks gave me back when (actually they still have it and were supposed to bring it with them on their yearly trip last month--but didn't...grrr.)  It's been a donkey's age since I last I used it, but I keep thinking I'd love to do some weaving at some point in my spare time (hah!).

Look forward to seeing your finished work!  And, yeah, what in the world are crochet and weaving doing together?!

Awesome!  Great job, way to save some dough.  Smiley  I agree that weaving should have its own board... I have only made one sampler and one tapestry, both on a lap loom I built myself, but weaving is great, and very unlike crochet, yes.
