Weaving!

That's right, I have picked up a NEW craft! Weaving!!! I'm taking classes with a woman who has a weaving shop in the front half of her house :) I've already finished the beginner's class, and will be starting one in Twill soon! My first project was 4 placemats. I ended up making 2 sets of 2 placemats, to try out a little different technique. Here's pictures of them (I still have to wash them, so they'll shrink a bit & the weave will tighten up some):





Here's a close-up of the second set's detail:



It's still a plain weave, just over 2/under 2. I loved the different look, tho! The first ones look really boring to me now, haha!
