Looms

Sarah loom watch 1.06.14

My neice, S, is a ‘loomatic.’ Absolutely mad about looming. Loomy in fact. S made the gorgeous watch in the picture above for herself and the bracelet below for me. I love the 1980’s colour theme on my bracelet.

S made a snake for He Who Eats All of Our Leftovers and a yellow and black wristband for her Nana, who is a mad keen Richmond Tigers supporter.

Every time I vacuum I gather up escaped looms.

I’ve had a go at looming myself, using the crochet hook thingie and the board. I was crazy about macrame when I was S’s age, and made both of my grandmothers jute pot plant holders for Christmas one year. I made wall hangings and belts. I may have to find some jute and show S how it is done. Macrame is looming on a grander scale.
