Plank loom warped by SpinHeartSpin, on Flickr

Who doesn't love weaving?  Woven fabrics look great, feel great and are pretty awesome.

Weavers (and future Weavers) of Craftster, let's play with our looms and share our successes (and failures? Nah.  No such thing as failures, just lessons learned!) here.  

Some inspiration:

This is one of those projects I have had on my list forever!  I loved your self-made loom...I think I will follow this craftalong and see if I can't finally do some weaving!

I have some yarn I want to get onto that loom.  It's actually quite relaxing and the final out come is always wonderful.   I hope you do join us!

I'm definitely going to give this a shot. I have a lot of extra yarn given to me by relatives that I just can't find projects for. Maybe a blanket made from woven patches is in order.

i bought a little lap sized loom from a farm we visited this summer - it came with some small balls of wool - can i craftalong learning on that? i love craftalongs, and it's been a while! Cheesy


i think by man would freak out if i jumped straight in with building a plank loom!

You Bet you can, Pops!  Yeah, my Loom's still at the shop, not at home, so I plan to get back at it once I get back to work, when my right side strong brain needs freedom from all the left side activities that doing books involves!   I don't think the hubbs would really appreciate yet another space consuming tool either!
