This is breathtakingly beautiful! I think you might have just converted me to weaving (I was never fussed about it before)! Gorgeous colours and texture, especially with the warp being so bright as well!

That is so beautiful!
I'm really sick with a bad cold now and could really se myself snuggle in a shawl like that!
Great work!

Thanks, everyone!  I love, love, love weaving!  All I know how to do is plain weave, which is the easiest thing ever, but it really shows off whatever yarn you wind up using.  I happen to have a lot of handspun and variegated yarns, so with just using plain weave, I normally always get something that's really texturey and fun.  Weaving is also pretty much instant gratification, too, since it takes a lot less time to weave something than to knit something using the same kind of yarn.  I highly encourage everyone to try it out!

Thanks for the details, I might really have to give a simple scarf or something a go. I think I still have one of those kiddy weaving frames, will have to look for it!
