Today though, I am taking the day off of manual labour. I hurt my arm last week and it was not happy with the painting I did yesterday. Spinning sounds much more therapeutic.
On the learning curve....
My sister recently gave me an Inkle Loom which I warped and started working on as soon as I got it home. I did a single colour warp and a single colour weave and made this (rather Christmassy) strap. I thought the loom was built a little funny, until I saw a picture of a "triple shed" Inkle Loom and realized that that was what I had. So that opens up the possibilities of more and varied patterns. It's also a great way to flex some weaving muscle and develop good habits and skills.
