I've had a great weekend with my Mum. I took over a knitter's loom and we've spent some very enjoyable time learning to weave.
Mum found some lovely chunky marbled yarn, something she's used a lot for crochet.
The finished item looks remarkably good for a first effort. (I'm just washing it, which should fluff it up a bit and I'll take another photo of it when it's dry.) The most amazing thing was how quickly it grew. It took an hour or so to warp up the loom and about the same again to do the weaving.
