Loom Construction

A few weeks ago I found a book in my Universities' library on loom construction (how to build your own weaving loom). Since I began my first weaving course this semester I've been hooked. Now when I see interesting colour combinations or even the way a garment drapes across figure of a passerby I think about weaving. There is so much to learn and I am only just beginning. 

I love the idea that I am able to make cloth. CLOTH!!! The stuff that clothes, blankets, rugs, upholstery etc is made of. It is one more process that I can add to my repertoire.    

Caleb and I planned to start the construction right away, but the semester has been so busy that it looks like we will have to start in June instead when we get back from the Netherlands! 

I will post pictures when we start building!
