Knitter's Weaving Book cover
pages from the Knitter's Weaving  Book For those of you who love running fibers through your fingers -- knitters and spinners -- this book gives you a simple way to expand your pleasure. Weaving on a light-weight, portable loom-board fits right in with your tactile delights.

You can combine your woven pieces with your knitting. Imagine a stretchy soft cuff knitted right on to your woven jacket sleeve, or a woven vest with a knitted back.

Knitters understand working in sections, and loom-board weaving fits this approach. You can create shaped woven sections just as you create sweater sleeves and backs and fronts.

A large weaving loom is big and bulky. However, using a loom-board means you can carry your project with you.

We are not talking about those commercial, rigid pin-weaving frames that are so confining. We are talking about weaving curves and other special shapes.

You can make your own loom-board in an afternoon using materials you probably have at home right now.

Just about any type of yarn can be woven on a loom-board -- from bulky slubby yarns through gossamer threads; handspuns to chenille, and eyelash yarns. You determine how closely or far apart to string your warp. Try some Woven mittens with knitted cuffs
