Great stuff!  We await pics of loom and weavings  :)

I did think of that, Jay, but we now have the builders in, ripping out my lovely bathroom so I can have a level access shower fitted.  I have been going through all my weaving books though.  Weeeeeeeeeee.

If I can fight my way past the builders, I'll take some piccies.  I have a lovely book of garments that can be made on the loom and I now have a list of projects.

Our spare bedroom is going to be my studio as soon as we can get in there to sort it, ie when the builders have gone. 

Roll on the end of next week.

That's great  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:   Looking forward to the pics and to seeing what you weave  :)
 
What is your book of woven garments called?  I would be interested in that too

FW, it's called 'Fashions from the loom' by Betty G Beard published by Interweave Press, Colerado in 1980.  ISBN  0-934026-03-3

Amazon have 6 used copies from 19.99 at http://www.amazon.co.uk/Fashions-Loom-Betty-J-Beard/dp/0934026033/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1357839340&sr=8-1

Couldn't even get up the stairs today for bits and pieces all over the landing so piccies will have to wait.  I'll stroke the loom again tonight before going to bed.
