My Inkle Loom

I decided to make my own Inkle Loom, but I wanted it to be wide enough to make many more things than a belt.  My mom wanted to get me one and I told her I would like to make one, so she purchased the supplies and I got the instructions for building the loom. When I got home it was time for me to go to work. My husband Barry decided he would start to build it while I was at work. When I got home it was nearly finished. I was so surprised that I cried. It was very thoughtful of him to go ahead and build it for me. It still needs a clear coat on it, oh yeah and I need yarn, tools, and a book to learn how to weave. I am so excited I can't stand it. I need to finish my bracelet patterns so that I can have them copyrighted and sent off to the Knitting calendar before the deadline. Also because I want to start weaving. Yeah for my husband for helping me in my fiber craze. I love you Barry. Also Yeah for my mom for making this all possible. I love you mom.
