I LOVE Weaving!

I have found my new love. There is something soothing about the back and forth action of moving the shuttle through the shed and watching patterns and textures develop. The warp is a little scary because I've had an unfortunate incident when it popped off the rod.

But when it starts to fill, it can be beautiful.

And then you begin passing the shuttle through the shed and the weft begins to develop and the pattern becomes visible. (How is that for some weaving vocabulary!)

But what I really love, is the scarf when it is all finished with its twisted fringe and is ready to be gifted.
