Weaving (Part I)

For ages, I’ve wanted to try weaving with rags. So even though my clipped rug isn’t finished yet, I decided to try making a loom.

In the book “Fabulous Rag Rugs from Simple Frames”, there was a description of a loom made from dowel rods and plumbing fittings. So I bought 2 – 4 foot dowels and 2 – 3 foot dowel rods to make my loom.

Yesterday, I started warping it in a continuous warp. Next, I’ll start weaving and take pictures as I go along. I have a bunch of rag balls made from strips (originally cut to make crocheted baskets).
