There's a new book out called Crazy With a Glue Gun.  It has 'scrap' weaving scarf instructions in it.  Looks quite simple!  I'm hoping to try it someday (adding that to list...ooh, #583 of crafts that I'd 'like to try sometime')

 Tongue

You make the 'loom' right on an empty fabric bolt (JoAnns will give them to you for free).  I guess it's something I could do at the office.

Signe,

That is a very nice scarf! I started a 15-week weaving class a couple of weeks ago. We spent class #1 warping and setting up our looms and last week we started weaving. By the end of the night, I finished weaving a small sample scarf with all sorts of different patterns and weft fibers (two and half hours about).

We ran out of time before our instructor could show us how to take it off our loom. It will be another two weeks before I can show it because she is off to Holland on a workshop and tour. Darn it Sad

I've done card weaving before -- I just notched cardboard on the top and bottom and wrapped yarn for my warp into the notches. Then I wove yarn around the card to make a small pouch. I don't have any samples to show because the little girl I was sitting for suckered me out of them (she's good at doing that).

But anyway, VERY nice, Signe! Good luck on making more! Be sure to show us your future projects! Smiley

sorry...English major in me...is the past tense of 'weave' supposed to be 'weaved' or 'woave'

waaay too late to be contemplating this kind of thing.

This is where I pull out the "English is my third language"-card Tongue  Thanks for correcting me though. I actually didn't know how to spell it, so I just guessed.  But I appreciate your correction. :-)

Queenofindiana; that weaving class sounds awesome. What kind of patterns did you do? I can't really do any advanced stuff. It's mostly your average stripes-and-squares. Or, I suppose I could figure stuff out but I haven't had the time to weave anything besides that scarf.

Also, thanks for the positive feedback, guys!

lol...English is my first language, and I still think things like this sound odd.  I wasn't trying to correct you, was really just curious.

Scarf is brilliant!!!
Non-native English speakers tend to use the language better than those who are born to it-- I guess if you're putting in all the effort to learn a VERY hard language, you figure you'd better do it right. It tends to go for American History as well, which makes me very sad...
LEARNING IS GOOD!
I say this as someone who dreaded going to school everyday.

I have woven and love it, at the moment, my loom is sitting in my attic in pieces. We need to finish the attic so I can send my kids to the attic to destroy things and have space downstairs to put the loom together.
What fiber did you use in your scarf?
I have used rayon chenille and I love the way it feels!
I've also used narrow silk strips as weft with natural cotton warp.
Weave on!

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.
