Loomsday – part two
After posting images of my looms on Loomsday (New Year’s Day) in response to Meg’s ‘challenge’ (be sure to check out all the links in her post), I received responses and images of other people’s works and looms and wanted to share them.
I’m always inspired to see what everyone is up to!
Judi sent me the following:
I started 2015 with an empty loom. That’s not a bad thing, as it means I am partway through a weaving project for my son and his fiancée. I offered to do a table runner for the reception (thanks for the idea, Terri!) and the whole thing kind of snowballed. I have two runners off the loom but not finished- I am waiting for some special beads to come in the mail. This was the end of the first warp:
I am not sure what this cloth will become, but it’s the nicest leftovers I’ve ever made.
The rest of the runners ( and I think the goal is another 4) are hidden in this picture:
I am so happy to be able to contribute something original to the party- my daughter-in-law-to-be is an artist and appreciates what I do, so she gave me carte blanche in the design. The only guideline was colour- yellow and grey. (That allowed for gold and silver for bling!)
So, my loom may be empty, but it is ready to go as soon as I am.
Happy New Year!
Lynn sent me this:
Two naked looms, two new projects for 2015. A pre-wound persimmon warp just getting threaded. It will be a challenge to see what colours I’ll use as the warp. I love a challenge!!! This is such a lovely and unusual colour.
And on the ‘baby’ Piccolo, some very fine wools in ‘Autumn’ colours. At least fine threads to start…..I have a feeling this will turn into lots of texture, all wool and …… who knows?
This is what Suzy was up to:

And here is her blog post about it.
Susan doing some SAORI weaving:
She says: Not sure what it will be, perhaps a skirt…
And having ‘fun with dollar store potholder looms’
Laura was working on weaving a vest for her dog:
Meadow’s vest to be…
And then Tanya and Dawn were weaving together and here’s what was on their looms:
Tanya received the blue/green sea colour cotton for Christmas and she was weaving “Sea Glass”…
Dawn also had blues, greens, teals, sari silk…
Well, that’s quite a round up. Thanks for sending in your photos!
Happy New Year and Happy Weaving!!
