Did you see the great tutorial that Pam of Gingerbread Snowflakes put together for Saori Weaving? If you didn't see it I highly suggest popping over to check it out. And believe it or not it's even a portable project! You can throw it into a bag and take it with you to work on while your waiting for an appointment or just getting in some relaxing time.
It's the first time I've ever done weaving like this and so far I'm really happy with how easy and fun a project it's been. I'm mostly using handspun yarn from my first spinning classes- which didn't turn out exactly well enough to knit with but seem perfect for this type of project. I'm also throwing in some leftover scraps of machine spun yarn that I like.
I don't know exactly what it's going to be yet... maybe just a nice mat to throw under a vase on the table. But I do know that I'm taking it with me tonight when we go to the drive-in! (It's the first weekend of their summer season and I'm so excited to go.)
This was a shot I took there last year (I remember I was knitting). Having a wool project to cozy up with on these chilly nights early in the drive-in season it especially nice.
Which is good because I still have a way to go before I'm done.
