Another rush job completed - 2 lengths of silk grograin ribbon at a half inch wide, as well as another length a quarter inch wide (not in the photo!). The quarter-inch was sooo cute, if I do say so myself, a lovely tiny ribbon! This will ultimately trim a gown with the little ribbon making bows.
I'm taking a tiny breather from weaving now - only in that I now have to wind off skeins and prepare for the next one!
I am looking into having a new loom made. Not anything 'historical', but something which hopefully will be practical enough for both tablet weaving and inkle weaving, and do very long lengths. Of course, how successful it is will depend on my design - I am basing it on an inkle floor loom, but with a variation to allow me to weave with tablets as well. Now to keep my fingers crossed that my friend will be able to make it. (And, if it doesn't quite work for both, it'll make one heck of a warping board!)
