Inkle Loom

I am using Jane Patrick's DVD, Inkle Weaving A to Z, to learn to use my inkle loom. This has been a summer bucket list item and I'm happy to say I'm making some progress. As a weaver, I get a certain excitement when I see my weaving moving past the prep stage into actual fabric, or in this case, a strap. I see so many possibilities with this loom and with this DVD. Jane Patrick is wonderful in her explanations and demonstrations in this. I'm going to make this into a dog leash when I learn how to assemble it. So far, I have about 49 inches woven. So much fun! I'll post more pictures later when finished.
I'm using 8/2 for the white and yellow unmercerized cotton and 10/2/2 unmercerized cotton purple.
