Weaving and Log Moderne Progress

Inkle Loom

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a woman with many crafts must want another one.

I have always been fascinated by weaving, but I didn’t want to invest the space or money to get a large loom. I tried card weaving, but it just didn’t work for me and then Kate Davies wrote about learning how to use an Inkle Loom and I was intrigued. I resisted for a while – do I really need another craft? And another piece of craft equipment? But then one of my students miraculously passed his OLNA and I decided I needed a treat.

I bought an Ashford Inkle Loom from The Good Yarn. I have watched some youtube videos and spent a very long time warping the loom. I am using DMC embroidery floss, but next time I will use cones from The Good Yarn.

As you can see from the image above, it is taking me a while to get the tension right, but I feel I am improving.

Log Moderne Blanket Progress

I am still working on my blanket for Miss A, I have just picked up for the last two squares, which are knitted simultaneously. It’s not going to be finished in time, but I don’t want to rush and ruin it.
