Hey gang! A very good friend of mine let me borrow a table loom and her warping board. I'd never used either before, but with YouTube and some willpower, I figured it out. This is my first ever attempt at weaving anything at all. I made a scarf using some yarn I spun up over the Christmas break (I dyed the yarn with food coloring). I really love how this turned out, and I'm officially addicted to weaving!













Thanks for looking!

Thanks, guys! I'm thrilled it came out as well as it did. I know things will get easier with practice, too. I really want to make a shawl next, but I'm still debating what kind of materials to use. (Singing) A whole new world...... a new fantastic point of view.....  Wink

P3, you are just getting more and more amazing. I don't know what else to say, really.

Absolutely gorgeous. I love scarves and wraps and have a bunch I wear regularly but this, I'd never take it off. It's fantastic.

If that is your first weaving, I look forward to seeing future projects!

I love the colors and you are learning a new skill!  Fantastic!  Also, great to use your own yarn!
