I'm Weaving…

This is my loom on its stand.  You are looking at the side view…the top part is the actual loom.

This shows the loom strung with the warp and I am starting to work on the weft.

And, this is the first weaving I have done on it…I am so proud!  It will be a scarf for me! 

Ignore that really dark blue – it is not part of the scarf.  It is what you do to get the warp to be even – so that the spacing is correct for your weaving.  It will come out one I am done with the scarf.

    Congrats on your first weaving on your loom!!!! Getting to the point of starting to weave is actually a big accomplishment in its own right.

    Enjoy!!!

    Beautiful work, Sarah! Those are two words I never would have thought I’d head from you: I’m Weaving!
    Congratulations! I knew you’d use that loom one day.

    This looks like fun. I hope you show us when it’s done. I just picked up knitting again – haven’t done it for ages – and I’m starting small too. I’m just making scarves. They’re easy to make… and more importantly, easy to finish! I don’t need any more half-finished projects on my to-do list!

    This looks like a fun thing to do…can’t wait to see your finished project. So will the scarf be all white? (You said the dark blue won’t be in there.)
