Lap Loom Weaving - I took an end of Summer trip to Los Angeles, where I grew up, to visit friends and family. While staying at my mother’s house, I found that she had saved all the lap looms I used in my childhood, as well as bags of yarn scraps painstakingly organized by color. I was so inspired that I made a weaving almost every day of my trip. It was such a thrill to take a break from the sometimes rigid nature of knit design (which I do professionally) and just create. I’m totally addicted to making these free, gestural pieces. Thanks, Mommy, for getting me hooked on weaving again!
