Hi friends! Recently Jenny from SonoraHandmade sent me one of her new looms and I knew right away I just had to add it to the weaving wishlist! This loom is arcylic, which gives it a really fun bling vibe. I felt pretty fancy weaving on this loom, and it inspired me to bring out my cooler toned yarns.
There are three different sizes available of these fun looms. And also a really cute comb and needle to weave with. You can find all the details in the SonoraHandmade shop here!
I got the medium loom, which is a great size for a quick little weave and testing some techniques out. Which reminds me of one such test weave I made that turned out TERRIBLE! Ha! And I finished that sucker to the end too. Now it rests peacefully in a drawer, because I have no idea what to do with it. It makes me laugh, because usually I stop myself early if a weave isn’t working out and I un-do it. Not with this one, I guess I was very optimistic that I would like it at the end. Have you woven a weave like that too? All the way to the end, where it’s off the loom and ready to hang? Maybe we need an ugly weave exchange so we no longer have to look at near misses. On the positive side though, mistakes are the greatest teachers.
Oh, this also reminded me, has anyone gotten anywhere with their weaving sampler and want to share some thoughts/pictures? If so reach out to me! (And for those of you who don’t know, the post on what I’m talking about is here).
For those new to weaving, I have a whole weaving round-up for beginners here!
