Wahh!! So pretty again!!! Darn it. Now I'll have to weave something. You've inspired me! What are the dimensions on these? Is this one the same size as your last??

Wonderful, Laura!

I'm too lazy to measure them after they come off the loom but I'm basically warping all the way across my 24" loom minus about 8 slots during direct warping on my 7.5 dent reed.  And I'm warping about 115-120" long because I am kinda clumsy with the finishing steps still and having extra loom waste seems to help me out. 

The Simply soft one is longer than the handspun one because I just wove until I ran out of yarn on the handspun one and wove to the very end of the warp on the simply soft one. 

I'm having lots of fun with it, I already have another shawl on the loom that I've started Smiley
