‘Tis the season for loom building, I guess. Several people on the Facebook Pin Loom Weaving Support Group¬†have been posting pictures of their latest hand-built loom. In fact, I have posted one myself. My husband built it, a 2.5″ x 2.5″ loom with ultra-skinny pins–a replica of the 4″ x 4″ Weave-it in¬†miniature. The same patterns suitable for the Weave-it can also be woven, with finer thread, on this loom. It has a tighter weave and produces (obviously) a smaller square.

I had to try out my signature stitch, “Horizontal Xs,” to break in the new loom. Quite a difference between the two!
