What materials did you use? I had Patons Classic Wool on hand in Rosewood (multi-colored) and Plum Heather (more solid color), 100g each. It is a "4" or medium weight yarn. (I have leftover yarn, too, for another project!)

What are you most proud of? Weaving is something I have wanted to learn since a young child. I finally did it, and can't wait to warp my next project. Practice, practice, practice!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Try your loom in different positions until you find what is most comfortable with the repetitive movements you make in weaving.

This scarf is fantastic! I am happy to see that you warped with different colors. Experimenting is great. And don't worry about your edges. Just keep weaving and practicing.

It's gorgeous! I'm so wanting to start weaving but I'm too busy knitting.

Thank you for your kind words. You should give weaving a try! It is so much more fun and fulfilling than I thought it would be. I think all knitters should learn to weave, too.

Wow, this is beautiful! It looks like you've been weaving for years!

That's sweet of you to say, thanks so much! (I'm still practicing to get my edges even.)
