Three Color Striped Sash

Today I finished the sash (belt) that I started at the Santiago archery range. I noticed that the beginning half is wider than the ending half. Maybe it's not a good idea to change locations in mid-project.  I'll have to keep an eye on that in the future.

This was my first attempt at stripes and I used 3 colors of yarn.

Weaving With My Portable Loom

On a whim I cruised through the children's section of the library and picked up a craft book.  (See photo). In the book I found directions for making a super easy loom.  I've been weaving almost daily ever since. I'm having so much fun. And I love that it's portable so I can take it to the park or an archery gathering or to the beach and weave.

My friend Barbara took this photo of me weaving.
