Project Weaving- completed

Quick update.  Project weaving was completed before lunch yesterday.  My tension was not great on this and I was not overly concerned about making a fantastic piece.  I just wanted to try it and see if I would like it.  I guess this will make a good mug mat.
The picture hides the fact that the red end is narrower than the other end.  My stripes are rather bowed but it definitely looks handmade- Ha ha! Just not very well made.   I will be keeping my eyes open for a second hand loom at a bargain price.  I really want a rigid heddle loom that is designed to be its own warpping board (space saving design!)  However, what happens, happens..and if that is nothing -oh well!  At least I have an idea now what it is like to weave.


Comments are welcomed. I will reply when possible unless otherwise stated. Foolishly posted "hate speech" comments will be swiftly removed.

You amaze me with your creativity. What a cool way to make a loom. I'll keep my eyes out for any loom possibilities for you.

WOW, you even weave? You are so multi-talented! I wish you were closer, my friend Kate has a loom for sale, but she lives in NH. Good luck, looks great!

Oh NO! Now I *really* love this, and simply HAVE to do it! I'm not a spinner, but my hands say they would like weaving. If you find more than one loom available, let me know, ok? I'm off now to look at the link in your last post. I'm excited!!! I love your piece, it will look perfect no matter where you put it! What kind of yarn did you use???

Well done!! I think it looks great for a first time without an actual loom. Cool!
Hope a loom pops up for sale. I will keep my eyes open too.
