Big Loom Country and More Weaving
I had the great pleasure of visiting and having lunch with Barbara Hand (and I believe introducing her to the blogasphere and visa versa). It seems that Barbara has been so busy weaving on this 13 ft. Glimakra that she hasn't gotten around to blogging about it. I am sure this isn't the biggest loom in the world. In fact, I think I saw one at least as big in New Mexico, but it may well be the biggest loom in Montana. Oh, please correct me if I am wrong.
I will be happy to to tell you more about Barbara, who has been weaving in Missoula for decades. In fact, she actually lived across the street from me the last time I lived in Missoula. (30+ years ago) I snapped this picture with my phone, so you will have excuse the lack of detail.
Now back to my weaving. I have been totally entranced by the accidental patterns
I decided to use them as random accents.
Each time I weave an accent, it is slightly different.
I know you can hear the last paper dropping off the warp beam. I will complete the weaving tomorrow for sure.
