About two years ago, I bought an inkle loom. A Schacht inkle loom. Before that purchase I would say, “I’m not a weaver…yet.” Now, I guess I’m a weaver. I got some wonderful basic instruction from my friend Marty F. And I purchased and perused two books on Inkle weaving: Inkle Weaving, by Helene Bress; and Inkle, by Evelyn Neher.
Thus instructed, I set out to make some inkle bands. My goal was – and still is – to make a series of dog leashes from my inkle bands.
I enthusiastically wove some bands, then, as can happen, I let my inkle loom languish as I turned my attention to other fiber endeavors.
Last Sunday, however, I couldn’t stand looking at the partially finished band on the loom any longer! I finished the band, and I warped the loom for another band – which I actually finished the following day!
Here’s a picture of some of the inkle bands I’ve woven.
I hereby resolve to try to weave one band a week. (I wonder how long that will last…..)
