Uh-Oh, I’ve Had This Feeling Before…
So today was the first day of my first weaving class ever and let me just say Wow! This was one of those moments, again, where I just loved it right from the start. Just like the spinning and the knitting. I was a little apprehensive because there is so much to know, but our teacher Rita was awesome and just said right off – don’t get overwhelmed. She started off with a short lecture and handing out these great books with a ton of info in them. There are 5 students in the class and she took time with each one of us selecting a project and appropriate yarns.
When we got to The Fold all brand new looms were set up. A Baby Wolf, Wolf Pup, and Mighty Wolf, along with a Louet Combo Table loom. Goodness gracious, talk about gorgeousness. I’m weaving on the Baby Wolf and let me just say…oh no… I love the cuteness. Did someone say travel loom?
I decided to do a scarf and picked out this gorgeous Manos and a simple gold thread. Here is my very first warp.

Then putting it on the loom a simple way from front to back.
Thursday we get beamed (as Rita put it) and then we start the weft. Wait till you see what I picked out for the weft. Total gorgeous.
