New Video Tutorial for how to weave a rectangle on potholder loom

Potholder looms may be square, but! you don’t have to just weave squares on them!! I have figured out ways of weaving other shapes, too.

Last week, I decided to make a video of how to weave rectangles on the potholder loom.

We were in the middle of a nasty springtime cold snap. March was really doing it’s lion in winter routine. brrrrrrrrrrrr.

It was so cold that we had amazing icicles on the prayer flags outside the studio window.

I wimped out of going with my husband to walk the dogs and opted to work on making a video of how to weave a rectangle on the potholder loom.

I was just about finished the video when my Best Beloved burst into the studio, and with great gusto cussed out the cold weather.

I instantly cracked up, and when he saw that I had been making a video, he blushed and apologized profusely.

I deleted the video and started over.

I was still laughing my head off when I started the next take, and it took me a minute to get myself composed again.

I went off and did something else, and forgot about the goofiness on the video, and hit upload.

It took hours and hours to upload it, and when I checked it… oh no! there was my chortling about my hubby’s little out take!

I asked him if he wanted me to take it down and start over and he said, nah… that it was fine, and he was sure that people wouldn’t mind….  so without further ado, here’s the ‘cold and wintery day’ video tutorial:  Here’s the link to the video: LINK

    Actually, sometimes he does play his guitar oh so gorgeously while I shoot videos…. I guess I had better ask him to do so again, right?
