I love triangle looms. They’re awesome. You weave in from both sides at once and you’re finished twice as fast. They’re easy, simple, and outrageously expensive to buy.
So my loving husband made me one.
A little one. Because he loves me, and he indulges my whims.
And I proceeded to make things on it.
Like that. I think I still have that one somewhere… but I can’t find it… this upsets me greatly… but I honestly can’t find it.
This was my first attempt at working with bamboo. It was a shawl/scarf for my midwife while I was pregnant with Little Man. She’s allergic to wool, but I desperately wanted to make her something.
When I was finished, Seth liked it so much he asked for a man scarf out of it. After all, it was bamboo, colored in graphite. How much cooler could that be?
And he wears it too… I do not have a picture of it sadly.
This was a gift for one of Seth’s aunts.
This was custom ordered.
I thought I would keep this one for me…. then I traded it for amazing pottery…
Like that. http://fromthegrounduppots.com/ Michael Mahan is the man who made it. Go check him out. He is amazing. He did my wedding gift to myself dishes.
My dishes in progress…
Finished…. I paid for these… I love them so much… way better than china in my book. I mean, handmade awesome pottery? It doesn’t get any better. Seriously. Go check him out.
Ahem. Anyway, looms.
Last night in home depot, I asked Seth if I bought the wood for a BIG one, will he help me make it?
He said yes. And that he would get the wood for me.
I’ve never really built anything before.
Well, I’ve nailed wood together, and made some VERY rough shelves out of practically trash wood… But um… something like this… that must be stained and sanded and finished?
I hope you wish me luck. I’ll need it.
