Fruits of the Loom

The first project of the new loom came off yesterday afternoon.

Yes, it arrived on Friday afternoon. I warped it and began weaving immediately, and less than 24 hours later, something fell off it.

The warp is some approximately 175 yards left over from a sock project - Zauberball Crazy socks. The weft is Malabrigo Chunky in Bobby Blue. The warp was 89" long, and I ran out of warp and weft at the same time!

I was originally going to use a fingering weight yarn in the melon for the warp, but when I tried it, the orange completely overwhelmed the other colors. So after a few inches, I simply cut it off.

In other news, I showed my friend Melissa how to weave on my little Cricket loom. This was her first project!!

It is actually long enough to make a cozy, doubled cowl, but the mannequin was having none of it.
