Last year I was gifted with a Beka tabletop weaving loom. A beautiful piece of equipment that I had not a clue how to use. But just the wood itself made it a wonder to me (yes, I love wood).
While talking with another friend, who is a weaver, I mentioned I had a loom I didn’t know how to use. One day this friend offered to teach me to use the loom, and eventually I was at a point where I felt I could accept that offer and give it the time and consideration a new skill needs.
Yesterday I received my first lesson on weaving! WOW, what a world! I am amazed, intrigued, my mind races with possibilities. Here’s what I managed to accomplish yesterday:
And a bit closer look at the weave itself:
I found as I practiced my weaving became consistently straighter and more uniform, until I started to get tired, at which point the last few rows became wobbly again.
I also realized there is a soothing, meditative aspect to the process that absolutely harmonizes with my soul.
Thank you Rain and Susan D-L, without the two of you and the gifts you have given me, I would never have known this wonder called weaving!

I love looms!! Lucky you!! The princess wants a spinning wheel in the worst way and I want the loom 😉 You weaving looks great!
That’s wonderful. Another talent you have.
That’s so intriguing! What kind of fabric are you weaving? It has a linen look to it. Enjoy the process.
