New Loom, New Weaver

Among my closer circle of friends I am the only weaver. When I was a knitter I was the only knitter for a long time, but that changed as I made and remade friends with knitters. Many of those friends are creative, crafty people, too. Sewing is probably the one thing we all have in common, but I am only an occasional sewer.

A friend’s daughter has always been interested in the creative things I do – particularly art and weaving. Last Christmas I gave her a pin loom, which was a great way to familiarise someone with the basic structure of weaving. A month or two back I persuaded her to try plain weave on the Knitters Loom, and she took to it easily, so I knew it was time…

To give her a SampleIt loom, and a lesson.

Apparently I am now the most awesome gift-giver in all eternity.

Coincidently, I taught her to crochet a few weeks before, and she had really taken to it as well. It’s so gratifying to spread the fun of creativity!

  1. Congratulations on finding someone to share the joy of creativity! I look at my stash and at my library of craft books and resources and realise I don’t know anyone who would appreciate the bulk of it.
