For weeks and weeks, I have been meaning to get my video tutorial of how to weave bias squares on the potholder loom posted to YouTube.
What with one thing and another, I haven’t gotten around to it.
One thing that was odd, was that I simply couldn’t upload videos for awhile. I just gave up on YouTube. Anyone else having trouble with uploads? Weird.
And, since it took me so long to get the video uploaded,
I decided to re-shoot it, using ‘Tarn’, since I am working with Tarn so much, lately.
Here’s a link for how to do one kind of join with Tarn:
I didn’t have a potholder loom when I was a child, so when I was introduced to it when I was a grownup, I didn’t have any preconceived notions about what it could or could not do. So… I have been designing all kinds of magical and wonderful things for it ever since (for decades, in fact- my love for the potholder loom is a long standing one!!!)
You can see some of the things I have designed for it here: Potholder loom.
Over the years, when I was designing for the Potholder loom, I realized that I needed to be able to weave different shapes and in unusual ways with the looms. So, I have done a lot of experimenting with it.
I have worked out a bunch of ways of weaving triangles on it, and this is how I twigged to how I could weave a square on the bias on the potholder loom…. after all, a square is just 2 triangles that happen to be in love.
The pesky gaps on the potholder loom were a challenge – but I have solved the mystery of how to deal with them!
How? Well.. check out the video!
