got some weaving going

I finally got to weave on my loon last night, can I tell you that it feels great, really I didn't realize just how much I miss sitting in front of the loom. I re-thread my reed with the same warp that was previously on the loom, seems like the never ending warp, but I'm determined to finish it into a scarf.

I wove this sample, and I like the way it looks, but there's an error. I think I need to go back and check my tie-up again. I think I hooked up a couple of harnesses where they should not be.

This draft is what I'm using, I'll figure it out tonight and hopefully get more woven than just a few inches.

I really like the blue and yellow together!

Yeah, you are weaving again! so a little mistake will just prolong the loom time! Looks like it will be pretty.

So glad to hear you're at your loom again. Good for you for doing samples! I've never regretted that part of the process. I either find a mistake, or learn something useful in the process.

Hip Hip Hooray! Great job and the sample looks like fun. You'll find your error. Sometimes though, they can make a happy design feature! ;)

If the error is regular, it's a pattern. :)

I am so glad you have the loom back up and going.
