SML: Thank you the overpass is one of my favorites too.

CohesiveChaos: Thank you!

lisaredd: Weaving is definitely fun to try. You can try it with out buying an expensive loom. Look for books that like "Weaving with out a loom" or Kids weaving books. It is a great place to start.

fire: It is on my Parents porch, it is all grey and white with inderect sun light. It seams to work out.

cutek94: Tabby is also know as Plain weave structure. It is the basic weaving structure of over one under one.

These scarves are beautiful and I think Watermelon Margarita is my favorite.  I've never tried weaving, but this really makes me want to try it too.  How long does it take to make one?

It takes about 6 hours when you know what you are doing and there are no glitches.

Man, I love Goldfish too. I always say I'm a sucker for greens and teals and blues.

You guys should check out the threads and tutorials on weaving with picture frames. You can make a loom simply at home from everything I've read. Franco has put several great bits of information on weaving out. I'll see if I can't find a link to some of his posts. Smiley http://francosfiberadventure.blogspot.com/ There's his blog link, I don't know if there are tutorials, but he has lots of good weaving tidbits. Smiley
