Then when I got my loom, dressing the loom seemed like an overwhelming job, and I just couldn't understand why anyone would try to thread twice as many ends as they "needed". Then I knew I would never do double weave. So when I started this book, and its associated challenge, I wondered if I might just skip this chapter. But no. In part because I would like to eventually weave a wide blanket. But then reading this chapter, and the weaving exchange of my land-based guild collided. My local guild is going to have a christmas ornament exchange. I felt uninspired. I thought about ignoring the exchange, that is, just not participate. Harumph. But - a little germ of an idea began to take form. What if I weave a narrow tube - stabilize it so it isn't floppy - and turned that into an ornament! So here I go. I am going to make a 2 1/2 inch wide warp, and weave it as a tube. It will be striped. And maybe it will work. Posted on Thu, 03/10/2016 - 08:07 My Second Woven Item Ever... A banner in Doubleweave Pick Up to celebrate a birth. I didn't know any better so I had nothing to fear...and it was amazing! You can do this! I found Jennifer Moore's videos to be my best resource as I tend to learn best by watching someone else do it. Posted on Thu, 03/10/2016 - 15:48 That is so beautiful! And just your second woven item ever? Truly impressive. After making that entry, I went ahead and measured out my warp so I will have to follow through. Just need to empty the loom. My tiny project is very modest, but I think it will also be fun. Thanks for your support. Oh that that twisted fringe - with beads I suspect - is icing on the cake. Benjamin is a lucky child.

Thanks for sharing your gorgeous double weave again Thor. It is one f my all time favorites here! Happy weaving!!
