I am not a skilled weaver. I know I need to practice to get better. I am now realizing my epic hubris in choosing a novice project to show in the interwebs. C'est la vie.

I learned some interesting things. Use different weight yarns intentionally, and know what the effect will be. The cream colored yarn was slightly lighter and more stretchy than the blue. The result was an uneven fabric It was also very fuzzy. Weaving fuzzy yarn leads to broken yarn. Fixing a broken warp is difficult and tedious. Fuzzy yarn requires a different heddle. Shoving the heddle into the weave out of frustration isn't a good idea. Kick something instead. Weaving two pieces simultaneously was slower than I thought it would be but made matching the white strip a tiny bit easier. Trying to match plaids WHILE you are making cloth is just a BAD IDEA.

Ultimately I folded it and hung it over a door.
Now I need a reason to wear it. It's actually pretty soft and comfortable. And not too warm.
