Lesley’s Weaving


Lesley’s been weaving shawls, blankets, scarves, and knitting hats for her Open Studio event on Thanksgiving weekend. I’ll post a reminder a week or so before.

About Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn started building his own home in the early '60s and went on to publish books showing homeowners how they could build their own homes with their own hands. He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers. You can check out videos (one with over 450,000 views) on Lloyd by doing a search on YouTube:

  1. Really makes me smile to see them folded and stacked…..lovely colors and amazing work.

    Seems like it must be a HUGE effort.

    Roughly how many hours would it take Lesley to weave something say 2 foot by 6 foot?

    and can’t remember, does she spin her own yard/dye her own wool too? if so roughly how many hours total for that and weaving.

    Am just curious as the entire process is mindboggling to me….(I have no skill at all like this)
    Cannot imagine a time when wove all their own cloth for every use.
