|1st Weaving attempt|
So as I mentioned a couple of weeks ago my DH bought me a weaving loom. He had put it together a week ago but considering I had a couple of work deadlines I waited until this weekend to attempt my first project.

I really enjoyed weaving and before noon on Sunday I had completed the first scarf and had the warp on for a second scarf. (Sorry no pictures of completed scarves yet.) Can you say I loved my loom considering the second scarf was also finished on Sunday.
After finishing the second scarf I figured it was time to do something different for a bit so I worked on a couple of baby hats and got them finished on Sunday.
Monday, being another day off meant that I could sit and relax again. So late Sunday I put on the warp for a third scarf. That scarf was quickly completed while sitting on our balcony Monday afternoon.

After completed three scarves all about 4 inches wide I decided it was time to attempt something the full width of my loom so I set up a shawl/scarf for myself Monday afternoon and got it started. The first attempt didn't work out too well as I pulled the weave a little too tight and it ended up a uneven so took it out and restarted. The second attempt is looking a lot better so now to try and get it finished this week. Yes, I am using up some of my stash with my loom.
Did I have a good relaxing weekend? Yes, I sure did. I am finding it difficult thinking about work right now but I know that if I work hard today I can go home and weave again this evening.
So off to work as I can hear my loom calling me already.
