My latest weaving hack
Here’s a weaving hack for those people like me.
I’ve had some problems with pain in the joints of my hands, especially my palms. That made grasping the beater on my floor loom less fun. One simply cannot weave on a floor loom without using the beater That means I haven’t been weaving on it very much lately.
I finally got to thinking about the problem logically. What I needed was some sort of padding between me and the beater. Ah ha! I figured it out. I purchased some bicy
cling gloves. After all, they are meant to cushion the hands on the bicycle bars. (No links here, these are just the ones I happened to purchase.)
I have since tried the bicycle gloves a few times, and they seem to work well. Success!
