I have been doing a little bit of weaving on my tapestry looms, mostly playing & MOSTLY reading, and in the next few days, with the help of my other half, I will be building a loom that is a cross between a Mirrix loom & Archie Brennan style loom. I'm getting a Mirrix shedding device, and may be picking up the copper pipes this weekend. I may wait until the shedding device gets here, first, so I can take the clips along with me to make sure they fit. It'll be a big-ish loom, 22" wide, and I'm not sure yet how tall.

Here is a picture of one of my small looms:

Here is a picture of the back, showing how I warp so that I can rotate the warp up & down. I alternate looping the warp at the top & bottom of the bar after going around the loom:

And a closeup of it:

Next time I warp one of the smaller looms, I'll find a yarn that is easier to see for a good closeup.

I have been following Ayala's blog for over a year now & she has been blogging for 8 years! To celebrate, she is doing a giveaway:

I took her basic faces class & love it: that is one of the things that she may be giving away!
