Great to see all the projects people worked on!

It was interesting to see all of the things people wanted to work on here. I enjoyed visiting the project pages and seeing things progress! I did get over my fear of overshot and am thinking of other projects where I'll be able to use the technique. I didn't get my old Franken-Loom up and running yet, but I did start figuring some things out for it so I'll have an easier path when I get to it.

It's been a pleasure weaving with you this October, Spook of the Loom-ers! Happy Halloweave to all and to all a straight warp! :-)

I learned so much this month.  I just finished my rigid heddle pickup stick dare project, and I've conquered my fear of following a draft on my floor loom (I'm at 36" and will probably finish that project in time to hand out candy tomorrow night).  

I look forward to weaving with you again!

For my personal challenge I chose to try weaving with two
heddles. I had purchased a kit and instructions from Syne Mitchell for
bookmarks and never had the courage to quite do the project. Once I realized how
easy it really was to do I extended my challenge to weave a towel. I finished
the towel and decided that was not much of a challenge either. So I ended up
making a belt for myself on the inkle loom. I wanted a design that would look
the same on both sides because the buckle I wanted to use would show the back
side of the work. I tried three different weaving patterns and came up with one
that I liked. I was pleased with myself for taking the challenge.

I want to thank the HalloWeave team, Karren Brito, Mary Rios and Beth Parks on a job VERY WELL DONE!

This was a lot of fun to participate in and see all the projects, and we all learned something!

This was a lot of fun.  I am interested to know who won what prizes.  Is there any way to see that?

A recording of the HalloWeave Finale WebEx meeting, where the People's Choice winners were announced, is being posted sometime in the near future.  It will be viewable for 24 hours. There should be a link posted by one of the HalloWeave team.

I did not make it to the meeting, so I too am wondering who won!

Thank you for the help everyone! It was inspiring (and sometimes intimidating) to watch everyone working on projects with a common goal.

I had a great time and learned a lot. I actually got my loom up and running again (after a mechanical malfunction) on the 31st and wove off the last of my Koolaid shawl. I'm tying the fringes and will wet finish in the next day or so. I will definitely do this again!
