weaving the weekend away.

weave away

When the invite to my friend Jenna’s baby shower arrived in the mail a few weeks ago, I knew just what I was going to gift her. I went to Gather Here to pick out some yarn to match her invite and even ordered a new small lap loom to complete my project. Then, this past Saturday, I spent the day weaving away. I absolutely LOVE how this piece turned out. The colors are so lovely and soft and the pattern I designed is so fun and special. It’s the first weaving I’ve ever given away and my favorite one, too. Jenna cried when she opened the box and saw what was inside. I’m so glad she loved it!

I took lots of photos for the remembering…

Those roving zig-zag soumaks are full of GLORY! I can’t wait to make another.

Who wants one next?


  1. Girl, you look like a pro! It looks like so much fun – might have to scope out Mary Ann’s next round of NYC classes!

  2. I’m not really into the whole weaving thing, but I absolutely have to give you credit because your pieces are always so beautiful! like, to the extent that they make me actually like weaving. Which is quite an accomplishment, I must say. You’ve got a great eye for colors and for pattern design!

  3. That is simply gorgeous! Your yarn looks heavenly.

  4. This is just gorgeous. What a thoughtful gift! Your friend will be reminded of your labor of love every time she sees the beautiful weaving!

  7. It really is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever been given – and to know it was made especially for us makes it so much more beautiful. I am patiently waiting for James to come home so we can hang it up in baby’s nursery!!! I will LOVE and cherish it forever!
