Looming interests

I love reading other people's blogs, and then reading the blogs those people think are worth sharing. This tends to be a pleasant, often educational, usually inspiring pastime but


it gets me into trouble.

Like, this post here? The one about the loom? The one with the picture of the scarf made with the loom?

(it's all the same link: I'm going for repetition to build excitement. Did it work?)

Reading that led me over to look at the Cricket loom mentioned therein. I like this loom: it's small - probably too small, much like my house and the amount of storage space left in it. But I also like the Flip Folding Rigid Heddle Loom and not just because saying it five times fast is kinda hilarious.

You could make a small floor mat on that bad boy.

Out of superwash wool.

As in, a machine-washable and dryable swishy mat for the sink where one might otherwise be doomed to scour pots in barren discomfort forever.

Yes, it would be the most expensive mat in the neighbourhood, but if we permit arguments like that, we wouldn't pick up our needles at all, am I right? And that would never do.

I am resisting the whole weaving thing. It's dangerous...
