My Christmas prezzie to myself was a cheapo 10" rigid heddle Beka Loom. My first project is still on it but here are some progress shot so you can pat me on the back and tell me what a good weaver I am (please I need validation here  Tongue )



The warp is cotton crochet thread and the weft is some cheapo acrylic novelty boucle. I like weaving cause I can do it while I watch my Law & Order marathons!

I always avoid lurking on the weaving board because I absolutely don't need to get involved with another hobby... And today... Tada ! I see your lovely loom... I want one !  Cry

I posted another finished piece in the completed section of the weaving board. The loom is a Beka 10" which can be bought for about 50 bucks at paradisefibers.net
