Off The Loom!

I really should do more weaving, although my back & neck may not forgive me unless I buy a stand sometime soon.

It’s such a great feeling to cut the weaving off the loom and have it fall softly into your hands after being under tension whilst weaving.

I hand knotted a fringe and gave her (it’s definitely a girl) a long soak in lukewarm water to stretch out her kinks and help her relax (maybe I should have done the same after hunching over the loom for hours). Then gently laid her flat to dry.

I love it! And I christened her Liviana.

You can see more pictures of Liviana in the Ready To Wear section of the shop. And when she’s not being worn, Liviana can double as a funky table runner!
