My mom and I attended a SAORI weaving class together today.  My mom has done a little weaving on a rigid heddle loom, and it was my first-ever weaving class.  It was such a treat!  The looms were already warped, the studio was full of yarn and scraps, and I loved the improvisational nature of this type of weaving.  It was a good type of weaving for me for a first attempt, since I tend to dislike following rules, and there's no right or wrong with SAORI.  When I look at my project, one minute I love it, and the next I think it's the crazy ugliest thing I've seen, but overall I had so much fun making it. 

Here are pics:

That is so neat!  I would LOVE to do something like that!  What are you going to use it for?

Thank you!  It really was so much fun, and the class was such a bargain -- $20 per person for two hours of instruction and all materials were included.  I would definitely do it again.  So nice to have a loom all ready to go, a yarn stash other than my own, and a pretty studio space for inspiration.

My piece is so small I'll just use it as a table runner or something.  Right now its unofficial use is as a saddle blanket on my son's rocking horse!
