warps and wefts

Last night I had a little lesson in weaving from my friend's mom. It was really great to learn all about this amazing technique. Looms are really intimidating, but it is fascinating how they work. I had no idea! They have petals like an organ and each of the threads of the "warp" have to individually measured and threaded through the machine. Luckily she has a really little one that I can start a easier project on. It was really fun to have some crafting time, and to learn something new.

I hope you have a great memorial day weekend! We are off to Pittsburgh to explore that city and get out of our little town for a couple days. See you back here on Tuesday!

  3. That looks awesome. I remember going to a rummage sale at an old folks community and they had an entire rec room devoted to weaving. So this is right up your alley! Have fun this weekend celebrating 5 years! Doing things differently than others is nothing to be self conscious about. Look at all the happiness and amazing times you would have postponed! Plus, you getting married meant us not living together anymore, which I think we can both admit did a world of good for our relationship!
