This is my loom. It is an 18 inch triangular loom. It was made by Fred Anderson. The nails on the hypotenuse have 3/8 inch spacing between them... This does not include the width(diameter) of the nail. I hope to get a bigger loom in the future.
With all of the nasty viruses going around, weaving can be a great source of relaxation. Whether you are doing rigid heddle weaving, continuous strand weaving or floor loom weaving. It is a great way to express yourself and escape. Our craft can join and connect people in a common interest. The sense of community that comes from sharing weaving can bridge a great many differences .Working with ones hands can bring great joy. The joy and community are also elements of life that promote health. I try to spend some time every day on my craft. Sometimes it is weaving, sometimes it is spinning yarn and most recently I am learning to sew. (Oh the ideas for the fabric)
I must confess I have had this shawl on my Triloom for some time... Now I am in the home from of finishing. I am trying to decide on a yarn for the border. I saw my Triloom teacher today. She does incredible stuff with a Triloom...I would love to be as talented as she is.
