Before I could knit...
This is a pastime I picked up about ten years ago - although it has never been extremely productive. I've made a few items I was quite proud of. At the end of my studio show in Fargo, I made a piece to present to each of my advisors. One of them was the largest piece of cloth I had ever made, 16"x20" with straight edges. The other was a small tapestry-woven piece made into a bag. At our last apartment, I strung up one of the doors in the house with thread and wove a 6 foot long silk and wool belt which I sometimes wear. When I left the art store, I gave a pillow to my best friend as a keepsake.
Working on the back of a tray or canvas stretcher (for paintings) the resulting fabric is never very big. A larger loom, like this, would be ideal.
Knitting is much easier to transport ;o) and so far, has been much more productive! Sometimes though, I do feel the need to sit down with the board and put in a few rows on something - to work the weaving process and see the patterns develop.

Getting Squint's medical history together, a few more medications he will need and bringing him home for the weekend! Our boss has been looking after him, because really, we had to ask our landlord for a 'second cat clause' for Sallymander. Mr.J reminded me of that a week after we got back from Minnesota, and he has spent most of the nights there since. It has kept him from attaching to us too firmly, as well -- but he still jumps up on me like I'm his Mom when I get to the office.
