New pin loom patterns and publications

If you're interested in lively conversation with other people who are passionate about pin looms, consider checking out the Facebook Pin Loom Weaving Support Group.  This is a closed group, which means that you have to ask to get in, but if you care about pin looms you will be welcomed.

Right now there is a weave-along exploring an incredible variety of designs specifically intended for our little 4" looms as well as a helpful, supportive environment for pin loom weavers new and old. Of course, if you are signed up with the group, you already know this is true.

There are new people signing up every day. It is so much fun to see everyone's excitement and the unique skills and perspectives that each weaver brings to pin loom weaving.

More exciting news! 

There's a brand new offering by Interweave coming out very soon. It covers weaving projects on a number of small looms including the Zoom Loom.

This is a link to the information on Easy Weaving with Little Looms.

Its getting intense, there are a crazy number of people flocking to Zoom Looms and other small looms.

Pin looms love Crispina Ffrench blankets

I am posting these images primarily as a feast for the eyes. These are all Crispina Ffrench designed blankets, made from upcycled, felted wool sweaters. Don't forget to visit her website at 

Considering that most of the people who look at this blog have lovely little looms, capable of producing perfect 4" or 2" squares of cloth, an alternate method of celebrating these lovely patterns comes to mind.  It looks likes Ms. Ffrench has used 3" squares of felted cloth... which might work perfectly if one were to weave in wool and then felt the 4" squares. Beautiful.
