And another trip – this time, Ireland

Well, we were in Ireland last week and just before I left for home, I was given a commission and asked if I could weave a long table runner to match a set of placemats I’d woven about 4 years ago. It’s always nice to get a commission, especially when you know you’ll have time to do it (and you’d be weaving anyway!). Luckily I had time to make a warp before I went back, and even luckier the weather meant I could take my little weavemaster out into the garden – above are the results.

I can never decide if I love or hate this little Weavemaster. Reasons to love it are clear – it cost me 12 GB pounds; it can be carried around the house / garden by one person; it is quick to thread up; You can wind off the back beam while standing at the front…
Reasons to hate it – It’s small with only 2 shafts and not a very big shed.

Anyway, it more than served its purpose and it was very nice to weave in the garden.

One thought on “And another trip – this time, Ireland

  1. I adore my little 2 shaft Weavemaster! It’s well made and the shafts lift smoothly, but I do agree the shed is very small. I’ve got a larger (and heavier) Leclerc Voyageur for more complex table loom projects.
