“I’m a weaver.”

When can I say that officially?  There must be a time frame. Is it when you have so many years of experience? Maybe once you’ve sold your first piece, or been commissioned to do one by someone for the first time? Maybe when you have more looms than sense, which is definitely the case here?

One of my cousins in New York has requested an inkle band belt, and a pouch with a cross-body shoulder strap after seeing pictures I posted in Facebook. Wow. That’s enough to make me proud, but is it enough to be able to answer “I’m a weaver” when someone asks what I do? I don’t know. I certainly have enough looms (14 or 15 at last count), but I certainly don’t have years of experience yet! My experience can only be measured in months, and not many of those! But I will get those years of experience eventually.

I bought Aneira her first potholder loom the other day, and she’s itching to start on it. I don’t know how well this will go; she has barely touched the Kumihimo disk she begged for at Christmas. Fortunately both items were inexpensive, but even if they hadn’t been, I would find a use for them!
