hey all,
i was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction of how to learn some weaving techniques, i'm pretty decent at macrame so i thought i'd try to step it up a notch cause weaving is really beautiful. any good books or preferable websites that show you how to get started?

I used to weave using a piece of cardboard with notches cut in, like the top one on this page:

The advantage is it's very easy and cheap to make different sizes, and you can use interesting shapes!

Oh wow, that link for the cardboard loom and finger weaving etc is really useful.  I'm interested in weaving but don't want to buy equipment then find it's not for me.  This will really get me started!
