Completed!

My MILís osteoporosis has become severe enough that she can no longer sit at her loom. She gifted it to me last fall.

No instructors in my rural area, so with the help of YouTube and a highly recommended book, I worked on a sample and then tackled my first project - 5 kitchen towels. Completed them last night. It was challenging, but such fun! My next project is already in the works.

I am so jealous! I did a handwoven purse in HS many years ago and have always wanted to get a loom. Your towels are gorgeous! Well done! If you need to practice more, I'll take your "seconds"...lol!

Wow!! When I clicked I certainly didn't anticipate seeing anything with such a tight weave!

Those are beautiful so colorful. What a timely gift to have.


When this is over and we can go out again, maybe we could do a PT kitchen/dish towel exchange. Wouldn't mind Beach Glass getting my name.

You loomed your own towels?

Crap, now I wish I had found a way to keep my grandma' looms. SHe had a giant one though and it would have taken an entire room. But she had a smaller one, too. I just didn't even know.
