Hi! Smiley I'm an absolute beginner weaver who is now waiting only for paypal to transfer money in order to purchase a beginners loom. I'm getting a Beka Rigid Heddle loom -  http://www.paradisefibers.net/Beka-Rigid-Heddle-Loom-10-p/4116.htm

So I'm waiting for my new loom by playing with loomless weaving. Cardstock heddles or cardbord with slots, that sort of thing. My current experiment, in really really bland wool, on a cardstock:

The weave I've done so far. You can see where I started tightening the weft thread.

The loom. Just cardboard with slits in the top. It'll do until my loom comes.

The peice of card I'm using as a shuttle:

The heddle, consists of a knitting needle, a pipe cleaner, a drinking straw and some loops of yarn. Pain in the bum

As you can see, I am VERY much anticipating my new loom. I anticipate leaving the cardboard behind as soon as possible. But it does weave a bit.  Roll Eyes
