What you see is all I got :o(

It's a shame that after all that work, I goofed in the end and only ended up with this much! But I tell you it was a great learning piece...there were a number of things I learned from it....that I won't forget and that's important....This is the one that I miscounted (or counted correctly) and cut off the others to match and that made the whole thing to short ugh!

Last night at Weaving class I was able to take the weaving off the loom I had been learning on....and take it home..I'll do something with it to commemerate my efforts ;o)

was able to start a warp with the teacher at my side so I wouldn't make a mistake..That was another great lesson.. I finished it up just in time...(3 hours)at home it would have taken more :o) but this time I was learning the correct method....You can too teach and old dog new tricks :o)
I can't wait to take it off the warping board...I'm afraid to do it alone , last time at home I had a twisted mess...I think I did something out of order.. (I know I did). The yarn warped on so nicely , almost like butter (that's the best explanation that I could give so you'd know it was delicious :o)
This is one side of the two yards long experimenting piece....

I'm so sorry about the warp, but the practice piece looks great!

Deborah, I'm about to start anew with more yarn that I bought this time :o) so it better be strong..You can bet I won't be using this towel when it's done.I feel like I should hang it on the front door and pin welcome on it :o) Ginny

Wow! Ginny, you made a piece of FABRIC! I am so impressed. Are you going to make it into a scarf or bag or something??
