My first weavings: two placemats made on a handloom that I built out of copper tubing.  I haven't blocked them yet, so the edges are a little squirreley. 

I am now officially in love with weaving.  :-)

Awesome! Weaving is so relaxing. I'd love to start a project, but warping the ol' loom sounds tedious right now.  Cheesy

Great first weaving!!

Very good looking weaving! Frame looms are so simple, but the product is amazing.

So how did you come up with these patterns? The shapes and colors are great!

Have a good day!

First, begin with a new color. Knit the first stitch with your new color (black) as you would normally. Hold the end of the old color (purple) in your left hand, and hold your working/new color in your right as normal. You will not let go of the end yarn in order to keep it taut/tensioned-- it may feel awkward at first, but you don't want to drop and pick up the yarn. (I'm not holding the end/purple yarn in my hand in this pic, my timer went off too
