Yarn! Was that a dining table?





Misty takes the Ingo dining table yarns away from its original purpose.

“I needed a weaving loom that was long enough to weave a scarf on. I had never whipped up a loom and only weaved on those little student frame looms in the past. I saw my Ingo table and realized that it would work for an impromptu loom. The wooden spoon (hanging from some scrap yarn loops attached to the top) is the heddle that moves one set of the warp up. The Chopstick with the red ends has loops of yarn around the other set of warp strings.”

    It would work better if you bolted an evenly-toothed comb on either end to keep the warp strings evenly spaced, or you could even use the old standby of a piece of thick cardboard with slots cut in it. And another comb for a beater. Anyway, how cool is it that you’ll be going around with a scarf you made yourself? :)

    That is so cool! I love impromptu looms.

    You could probably make a rigid heddle out of something that Ikea sells…hmmm…
