back to basics

my house is almost empty now.

i have no looms. so i'm weaving on a frame.

you could say i've got piles. knotted piles. sounds painful doesn't it?

i'm practicing on the little frame before i make something on the big frame. i want to make a big square piece out of two length sewn together, for sitting around on the ground on.

i haven't done any weaving for a while and it's nice to do something simple, with equipment that anybody can get hold of. i won't be able to keep a loom in my new house cos it's tiny, so i have to learn how to weave this way. i think one could make quite substantial rugs by sewing strips together. we'll see.
