Loom weaving

The past several months I’ve been thinking about the next craft I’d like to learn. I thought it would obviously be spinning. After all, I do crochet and knit.

The loom size will be at least 32″ and I will most likely will purchase it soon, who knows it might be an item that I gift for myself this Christmas.

I also stumbled upon this video about intricate loom weaving, truly fascinating!
