Square Loom goes Rectangle!

Early morning at Hillcreek Fiber Studio's tent at Maryland Sheep and Wool Show.
Here is the square loom in a rectangular configuration. A teal and cranberry diagonal plaid was being woven. Notice that you work from both sides of the rectangle when weaving in this format. It makes for fast completion of a project. Many design possiblities; plain weave, twill, lace....mmm
There are many great uses for this shape; shawls, sleeves in a coat, front panels in a jacket etc. Carol Leigh has a new fact sheet on how to work in the rectangle configuration
