That’s it. I’ve achieved a childhood’s dream. I am now the proud owner of a loom.
As a child, I was fascinated by shuttles made of bones in archeologic museums.
I read about textile techniques a lot. I had a couple of weaving toys as a child.
So when my birthday came up, I thought I’d ask for something I’ve wanted for a really long time : a loom. Real deal. I chose a rigid heddle loom, 30cm Ashford’s knitters loom. Directly from New Zealand ! I wish I could visit this country someday… not just for the landscapes and the Lord of the Rings movie sets, but also to learn more about local crafts.
I love how the creativity of weaving. And how quick it can be to finish a project. You can weave a scarf in a few hours.
Have you ever tried weaving ? Would you like to give it a try someday ?
Ever been to New Zealand ?
