An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

People often assume that I weave, because I spin, but in fact I've resisted weaving for a long time. But yesterday's craft group meeting was all about weaving, so I gave it a go. Interesting to learn different stitches with names like 'Egyptian knot'. Since I don't plan to do much weaving, I used a very simple loom, just a cardboard box:
When I was a child, I had an old book called 'Things For Girls To Make and Do', which showed just such a loom.
