    I just bought a Mighty Wolf 8 shaft loom. Any suggestions for books and or websites with drafts would be most welcome.

    For a recipe book there's Carol Strickler's *A Weaver's Book of 8-shaft Patterns from the Friends of Handwoven*

    If you want to start designing your own there's Doramay Keasbey's *Designing with Blocks for Handweavers* and Madelyn van der Hoogt's *The Complete Book of Drafting for Handweavers*

    Thanks so much for your suggestions... I'll look for them! I can't wait to get started. The designing aspect of having 8 harness to play with is exciting! Very Happy
