I went to the local library a week ago and I found this little treasure. Because I have a Glimakra drawloom I was very interested in this book. Hints and tips from the writers of VAV Magazine are ALWAYS welcome. Was I delighted when I opened the cover to browse through the pictures. None of the projects are overly complicated. And some of the treasures include how to weave a hammock, make european style linen towels with the woven loops, and a striking striped summer “light” blanket. While the threads are not ‘translated’ it will be easy enough to make use of of Handwoven’s thread guide to find our American equivalents.
I am most interested in the hammock project as I have always wanted to make one for my house. I can’t wait for a sunny day and a glass of lemonade and my sunglasses!
