Day in the Life of Looms 2011

Love Meg's tradition of candid loom shots on the first of the year!!

You can join in too if you have a loom.


On the Toika, cut-off grey cottolin warp that will become towels...after I unravel the mystery of the vertical lines that appeared when I wet-finished the sample.


On the baby wolf, a cut off white tencel warp. I'm changing from a summer and winter threading from a Susan Wilson workshop to an overshot threading for the remainder of my samples.

Hopefully "dully-colored cut-off warps" is just a snapshot in time, not a theme for 2011 for me!

Here's to a great year for all of us!

What a great tradition! Will have to get photos of my looms to post on my blog - perhaps that will spur me into getting some weaving done, finally!
Happy New Year!

Happy Newyear to you too! Isn't it a great tradition! seeing all those looms on blogs.

Oh, no, "dull" can be the best ever warps. There is so much that can happen to them!! I do wish I had a window like yours to gaze outside while weaving...

Because of your blog post I found out about photographing our looms. Fun, isn't it? Happy new year.

Your loom in front of those beautiful windows looks like a lovely place to work at your craft.

Happy 2011,

I'm playing catch up...it's so nice seeing your looms at the beginning of this new year. I'll be posting mine on Saturday!

Dull? A white warp is just a blank slate waiting to be filled! Or so I like to tell myself...
