well, technically this is not my first weaving project, but it is my first project on my very own rigid heddle loom!! how excited am i?
my first project will be placemats!
choosing the yarn is so satisfying. the coral yarn i dyed myself, and the lime green will both be used for the warp, and the deep plum will be the weft.

the warp is all ready to go! (right)
with a little help from my husband, the warp is on the loom, only one more thing to do before i can start weaving!
and that's tying on. let's weave!!
it has definitely been a learning process, but i am so in love with it. i don't even want to get into how many times i had to undo what i was doing and start over, but i had enough yarn and the color combination is really nice. i started weaving this past weekend and it's been trial and error. i'm sure it will just take a little bit for me to get my rhythm back.
i'm not too crazy happy about these edges, but i'll get it right.
more updates soon!
