Yup, I just added a new item on my list of hobbies - weaving! Specifically triangle loom weaving, that is.
Last Sunday I attended a triloom weaving class with Gale of Weaver's Cupboard and after weaving 2 samples on a 16" loom or so, I decided to get a 48" walnut loom from Gale and upon arriving home, immediately set out to weave my first official shawl.
I picked a handspun yarn from my first forays in spinning. I think it's from a Crosspatch Creations batt and it has such a lovely luster! After 2 hours of weaving, and another hour of attaching the fringe, I ended up with this, which I've worn twice already even though it needs a soak:
The following day I started weaving my second shawl using some handspun using Pumpkinhaus fibers as well as another handspun that I carded from Studioloo. This one probably took me a total of 3 - 4 hours to do and I love it!
I am officially addicted to this!
