Weaving

I can't believe its the end of January all ready . This year will fly by just like the last one at this rate.
I have warped up my 4 shaft loom for the second attempt at becoming a weaver. For Christmas I asked the boy's for weaving related gifts and was lucky to be able to replace the reed and get some more wire heddle's to make the second hand loom like new. Also I brought some spools of Thread to weave with.
