Potholder Loom Techniques-How to Weave Checks and Plaidishes and sew them together

Weaving with yarn on the potholder loom gives so many options for creative colorwork.

This video tutorial shows how to use just 2 colors of yarn to weave all kinds of checks and ‘plaid-ishes’ (yes I made that word up LOL)  and how to stitch the squares together.

Happy Weaving!

Potholder Loom Techniques- The Lower Left Hand Corner and a gift

Yesterday, I was so touched to receive a lovely package in the mail.

In the package, there were 2 vintage/antique Teneriffe Lace looms (Polka looms) and books and several other treasures.

It’s a lovely gift! Thank you so much Camilla!

In the package there was also a lovely letter thanking me for all my hard work.

Also, there was a question about the lower left hand corner of the weaving on the Potholder Loom.    I think that this corner of the weaving may be problematic for people, so I am glad that she asked about it.

So, here’s the video explaining the long loop, and at the end of the video, there is a small glimpse at all the treasures in the package.  I am so grateful for this unexpected act of kindness.  Wow….

PS:  There are also a few of the wooden dolls that I love to carve. I couldn’t resist including them in the video 😀
