Oh my gosh!!!!!!!

I just won a contest! For Rhinebeck!!! A workshop!!!! Woo Hoo! This is where I posted at,,,,,

This is what I saw just about 10 minutes ago!

I emailed them just before,,,,, Geesh this is turning into a good Birthday week for once.

I also got my 12 dent heddle delivered today....which is good. Only problem is that I was supposed to receive 2 of them. I can take this type of bad with the good!

Ok it's late. I don't know why the links didn't work. I'm tired and I'll fix it tomorrow.

Yay me! LOL!

Ta Da..............................

Alright then. Delivered Wednesday,, all set up finally by Friday. Actually started on it Saturday night,, finished last night. My first scarf made for a forgotten acrylic blend worsted, using the 8 dent heddle on my Kromski Harp. Sorry about pic quality, again, thru my cell phone.

Its a bit over 50" long, havent actually measured yet.


Hemstitching and fringe,, which was a hoot to make!


An idea of what it looks like, hanging on my newly installed front entrance door, lol.


ETA I finished up the other sides hemstitching and fringing earlier today!

Yay,, I wove!!!

As I was weaving Saturday night, hubby came over to me and said "your actually doing it?" Men!!

Next up. What to decide on for ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,WEAVING WEDNESDAY!!!

First sample

Ok my warp slipped. I guess I have to fine tune my loom a bit. And buy some butcher paper in a roll, or something like that. Will waxed paper work? Tinfoil? Your supposed to let the paper feed as you roll the warp up to create even tension on the warp as it winds onto the back bar. Mine wasnt,,, but I tried the best I could considering it was peg warped rather that warping board the warp. As I first went to forward the warp to continue weaving,, guess what slipped. LOL,, case of live and learn!

Anyway, I'm sure this will straighten out in the long run,,, and if I'm using the right terminology,, here's the tabby so far.


Crooked yet even at the same time!

Can you believe......

2 days after I receive delivery I finely get my loom going? I decided to warp from the peg,, cause I only wanted a short warp anyway. I definitely will try the warping board on the loom,, it was too much a PITA,,,, and you need a 2nd person to help out. Hubby wasnt the greatest of help either!

Here it is to start. More pics to follow once cell phone charges up again, lol.
