One of the benefits of taking a break from the Facebook Pin Loom Weaving Support Group is that I now have leisure time to explore. Without noticing, I’d practically left off embarking on personal pin loom weaving adventures.
Let 2017 henceforth be known as . . .
The Seemingly Endless Year of Triangle Pin Loom Reasearch
(and let that be an end to it).
I can’t say I’ve enjoyed the frustration and masses of computer and paper work associated with my research. I feel I’ve been reasonably thorough, have answered all the questions I’ve come up with (feel free to ask yours because the year isn’t technically over yet), and am finally (at least for the present) satisfied with the results.
I wasn’t sure if I should post this here or on my AIPLW blog, but opted for here. AIPLW is more for strict pin loom weaving activities. Nevertheless, I certainly could have started there and ended up here which would probably be a waste of time, so . . .
I’m working on a collage (which is remarkable since I generally have difficulty with collage) and I needed some mesh for a bird cote.
There are some things one just CAN’T let go.
For me it’s the triangle loom. I’m on a quest to discover how to get it to make a half square in the three-layer warping style. So far, no good. You can see how the bumps along the hypotenuse don’t intermesh. The corners don’t work either (believe me). If you lapped one hypotenuse over the other and stitched through two thicknesses, you’d have it, but that’s not what we’re after.
