Yarn Along..

re • claim: To bring into or return to a suitable condition for use, as cultivation of habitiation.

This warp.
Currently on the Saori Loom -

Reclaimed, thrifted, recycled sweater, and hand spun yarns.
A complete conglomeration of deliciousness.

The use of salvaged materials frees me.
This cast aside yarn is getting a new life.

There are no expectations.
A little bit of this..a little bit of that..

No fears or hesitation.

Which leads me to Craig's List.
Gosh I love Craig's List...

So I stumbled on this little beauty this past week.
A barely used Schacht tapestry loom (with stand).


This is the first weaving I made on her.  It is ready to come off the loom, but
there is still warp to be advanced so I am weaving another before I take this one off.

Weaving tapestry is incredibly fun!
This was woven with all reclaimed fibers...Sweater bits, yard sale finds,
and estate sale yarn.  


Completely lost in the beauty and history of the Bauhaus weavers..

  1. What a find! Congratulations!!!
    Your first weaving looks great, have fun with the second!

  2. Oh that is beautiful! I am not into Tapestry weaving so much but I have to say I would love to make this. I'm anxious to see what else pops off your loom!

  3. Oh my goodness, this is so amazingly beautiful! Congratulations! What a good find! I've been thinking about making a woven rug some how, but without a loom. Maybe I can jig one up some how. :)

  4. Wow! The weaving is awesome! Great job.

  5. and to think that this beauty wouldn't have existed if you hadn't reclaimed all those cast offs......WOW.

  6. Oh wow, great weaving. I have always wanted to try that. So pretty. Great Craigslist find.

  7. What a fantastic find on Craigslist! That loom is beautiful. And what you are weaving is terrific, too! I am in awe that that is done will all reclaimed fibers.

  8. It is really beautiful, I ask to my boyfriend to build this tool maybe one day... Really pretty weaving.

  9. What a fantastic find, but the tapestry looks stunning!

  10. I have had weaving on my mind lately and I come upon your post in yarn along! I haven't weaved since my art school days and have been thinking about acquiring a loom. Your work is so beautiful! Love!

  11. Absolutely gorgeous! What a happy find for you. (Stone Soup are a genius.)
    Sending love.
