This is a semi-tutorial on using thick-and-thin art yarn on the pin loom. (Usually I’d use a Wunderwag loom for these photos, but couldn’t readily lay hands on an available-for-use one.)
Something we’ll call Impatience told me it would be . . .
faster? more convenient? easier?
. . . to spin the first length of my art yarn on a spindle. Yeah. Well, not exactly right. However, we’ll skip over the difficulties of arriving at the tiny amount of yarn on the left-hand spindle in the photo below. The yarn on the right-hand spindle was much easier. It’s a bunch of stretched out silk “hankies” spun onto a lightweight spindle. It was fun to spin. The left-hand spindle wasn’t exactly fun, but there it is.
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.
