Weave-It rug loom video

The Weave-It Rug Loom is one of my favorite little looms. Awhile back, I was lucky enough to find this one at an antique store along with a plastic 4" Weave-It. The Rug Loom is a little bigger at 5" square and it has fewer pegs, but you wrap it exactly the same as the smaller loom. It was meant for using bulky, or a "rug" weight of yarn, and most of the patterns I've seen from the old booklets are for afghans or stuffed toys.
I like my Weave-It Rug Loom so much that I had to make a video. Hope you enjoy it!

Pillow Man

It started out as Lazy Dog, the cute, floppy Weave-It dog featured on the Eloomanator's blog. But, since I didn't have the 4"x6" loom, and I didn't feel like studying the pattern, and my yarn was all wrong, I simply made six 5" Weave-It Rug Loom squares out of Wool-Ease and stitched them together. Of course, it didn't look anything like a dog… but it was, well, something.

We call him Pillow Man. His head is crooked, his arm and legs are rolled and stitched on at weird angles. Pillow Man is always sleepy and ready for a nap. So now, I wonder, will there ever be a Pillow Woman?
