finally, off the loom

The sampler that I started in my first weaving class last march is done. It was so boring, and I knew that it would have no purpose in life, so it was very hard to motivate to work on it. But after all that work involved in warping, I wasn't going to quit until I had finished the whole thing. So, it's done: a long, rather sloppy piece of fabric woven in plain weave, mostly. And I've started my next project: a set of coasters. One is done already!

In other news, my shawl is coming along: I may do one more repeat of the lace and then start the edging.

Your weaving is really beautiful...I love those colors together! Sorry you're stuck without yarn to finish the shawl though! Can't wait to see it when you're finished!
