I’ve been wanting to learn to weave for a while now. I’ve been staring at Esty/Instagram/Pinterest and all of the beautiful hand-woven wall hangings that crafters have made all around the world, and I’ve been itching to try my hand at making my own. It’s a natural next step from knitting, and it’s a great way to use leftover scraps of wool/yarn in your stash.
I found a great little hand loom on which to learn from Fringe Supply Co. It’s made of maple and it’s about the size of a medium-size picture frame (approx 7″ x 8″). It took me only a few hours to warp my loom and weave my first little wall hanging. Fringe Supply Co. also provides a GREAT little tutorial on their blog on how to get started, and it really helped me start my first project.
Despite a little bit of a rough ending taking it off the loom, I think this turned into a pretty good first attempt at weaving! Maybe I’ll even try to do some larger pieces in the future!
