7 Reasons why using variegated yarn

Have you heard of variegated yarns? They are those yarns that are not made of a solid color, such as red, blue, etc. Rather, they are made up of a mix of colors. They can be made with several shades of the same color (tone over tone) or, more drastically, using completely different colors, to... Continue Reading →

Woven square designs to inspire you

A few months ago one of my students asked me where she could get woven square designs: combinations of colors and stitches, basically. At first I thought I didn't know where from, because maybe the fun lies in inventing the patterns by ourselves, or not? Maybe not! My next thought was, EUREKA, she is now... Continue Reading →

How to be creative with or without a pin loom

How to combine color yarn

When it comes to being creative, many of us are afraid of mixing colors, of not combining them correctly, of making it hard to make a garment, of finishing it and only then seeing that the colors we choose do not completely convince us... does this happened to you ? Well, today I want to... Continue Reading →

We love patterns!

When I made my first book 100 Pin Loom Squares (2015), I honestly did not know about 4x4" pin looms or Colombian looms or trio looms, whatever you want to call them. Making that book was a path of discovery, of successes and errors, because although I have learned a lot, it takes time to... Continue Reading →

Cardboard weaving ideas

I love to constantly find different materials at home to weave mini woven pieces, because they allow me to reuse materials that have been around loose or stored for years, abandoned in a drawer, such as cardboard, old notebooks, wool scraps, wood scraps, etc. But what I like most about these little discoveries is the...
