hello weavers! 
Are you folks interested in either a challenge or weave along?  I'm trying to get a little more life ont his board and think either of these moight work,  What do you all think?
I was thinking I might whip up a quick tute on how to weave a simple scarf on a homemade 2x4 loom.

Scarf woven on home made looms?

Is that wide enough of a challenge?

Have a good day!

I'm thinking it might get more ativity on the board.  It would be more of a weave along, not the challenge.  Get a few newbie weavers going and folks who would like to try an opportunity.  I'm not a weaver (yet) so I'm not to sure what else we could do for a challenge.  I'd love some input!

I would love a tute!  Weaving looks like fun, but I know nothing about it, other than pot holders I made as a child using loopy things.  Smiley

Okay, a weavealong tutorial for beginners?

I'm actually developing something similar for my guild next month.

I was going to do some really basic weaving with homemade items.

I've done weaving with with cardboard frames, picture frames, and other items using frame loom techniques.

Is that what you had in mind?

Have a good day!

That would be awesome!  Anything to prevent me from having to buy anything else!  DH has offered to remove toes if I bring "another project into this house"

What he doesn't know...right?  Roll Eyes

you bet! that's pretty much what I've got in mind.  I've seen your posts with the frames and such.  It would be cool to know how to do it!  If you could take pictures and write up a how to, I'd love it (and sounds like we've got at least one other interested Smiley  )  Or I can still work on the 2x4(or 2x8, as that's what I have kicking around)loom scarf tutorial, or we could do both! lol

that would be cool. I've never done a craft along, and I have a million things on the go (as always) but I'd be interested

I promise I've got a tutorial started!  I've got the weaving 1/2 done, but because I built the loom at the shop, and it's stayed there,  I only get once a week to work on it and for only 1/2 hour... it's taking me a long while to get it done.  But I will post it once it's done!
