    Default Does anyone here weave?

    Since it turns out a couple o' yall have been holding out on me about spinning I'm wondering if anyone here weaves and has somehow forgotten to tell me. I swear I won't be mad if you offer to teach me. Fess up!

    Hmm I mean any kind of weaving, on a triangle loom, tapestry loom, full on floor loom, anywhere in between... all of it I'm curious about! If there's a kind that's not done on any kind of loom I'm curious about that too, LOL.

    Ohh Crunchy... I think I have it in the back of my head somewhere that you felt too, is that right? Where do you learn all these awesome things?

    I learned how to weave on a backstrap loom in Guatemala. It is very very hard! Very complex.
    I could only do it with an instructor right there.
    I still have the loom and threads.
    The loom is just a series of wooden dowels.

    I weave on round looms that you can buy in Michaels. It is a very simple technique although there are more difficult stitches you can learn for various projects. They even sell pattern books there for round looms. Last time I was there they were still selling the round looms in kits with different size looms all in one bag for like $20. It is fun and addictive. So far I've made baby hats and booties using various sized round looms. They turn out great and they're easy
