I won a contest on Kimberly's blog, she's a military wife, mother of a few and a homeschooling mom. Check out her blog here. This cut key chain was my prize, I attached to my tiny weaving scissors that I love to use to cut between my warp when adding new weft.

This is the close up of the little letter beads, which are oh so cute. Thanks Kimberly I'm totally enjoying it.

I have become a little more proficient in warping my loom, I guess I felt that way since the warp I tied on last night was no more than 7 inches wide *grin* and got done in an hour and half which made me feel like a queen, hehe... I warped some sport weight creme and cable crochet yarn, the same combination I used for the shawl - ahem , turned window treatment; since I had enough left over I thought it would make a really pretty delicate scarf.
I started with my usual plain weave and decided it needed some pizazz, well at least some lacy treatment, so this is the results of my hand manipulated weaves. Don't tell Meg I showed you *wink, wink* its for the Small Scarf Virtual Exhibition so this is all I can show you :)

I am so glad you are enjoying your prize. Now if only I could get the time to get to my loom. One of these days I'll be back there again. I just know it :)

I like the hand-manipulated lace! When I was weaving on a rigid heddle loom, I did a lot of this and really enjoyed it. Now the yarns I'm weaving with are far too fine to do this. Well, I could, and it would be beautiful, but I would lose either my eyesight or my sanity!
