Weaving is coming on.
« on: February 02, 2013, 10:40:54 pm »
I am loving my loom.  I've woven about two foot of warp so far.  I can only do it for a limited time as my shoulders start to hurt very quickly but it's getting there.  I definitely picked a bad warping yarn though.  I have several broken warp threads now and it takes time repairing them.  I reckon the scarves are going to look really good though.

I took a photo of the loom warped up and will take one of the work in progress in the next day or two.

Sounds good!
I'm sorely tempted to get a loom but resisting just now and sticking with my spinning....but one day.....!
Look forward to seeing the pictures.

The scarf looked really good when I saw it last week,  must feel good to get back to something you enjoy and a good way to take your mind off other things. :)

It is a good way.  Haven't done much in the last few days due to the meds making me feel awful but I have plans to get up there tomorrow.
