A new fiber craft arrives at my house…

I have received a loom by swapping yarn with nova last week, and I have been playing with a new fiber obsession since.

It doesn’t take much to set up, just turn a few screws to tighten it and you’re done.

(i think that there should be a mattress here, it would make a nice bed)

If you have been reading for a while, you might remember my indecision over my attempt at a Chevron Scarf. I liked the thought of the colors together, but I did not like  the way they were knitting up.

So I ripped it out,…

And I wound it back up, cut some warp threads from it, and started weaving.

Isn’t it amazing how different it looks compared to the knitted fabric?! I like the look of the woven pattern much better. I also like that it isn’t a lot of work to get the plaid pattern.

So now I’m a weaver too!
