Between the ideas sparked at the fiber fair and my own adventures in spinning yarn, I guess it was inevitable that I would take an interest in weaving. With some scrap lumber, 250 panel nails, and a little help from David, I had a new triangular loom!

This weaving is done in a continuous strand, starting at one corner, and weaving both sides simultaneously to meet in the middle.

The finished piece is 3 feet across, and with a little fringe, ready to pop off the loom.

Wonderfully soft and warm, it's a perfect scarf, shoulder drape, or child-size shawl! Not bad for my first attempt!
