I *finally* started weaving on the Bon Hop which I warped weeks ago. I swear I had some kind of fear of starting. I think I'm a bad weaver -- probably because I never practice, huh? -- so I'm always fearful of starting and making a mess of things. The Bon Hop is a little warped and is probably in need of being taken apart and reassembled, but it worked remarkably well despite that and all the practice is definitely helping me to improve on my 2 main problems with my weaving -- the tension on the edges and my tendency to beat down too tightly.
This loom is probably too small for many projects, but it's great for learning and I think I'll experiment with different patterns next. I'm sure I'll be showing off more of the Bon Hop in weeks to come!
Note my handmade bobbin. My loom did not come with it's original bobbins, so I just made one by cutting a scrap of cardboard into a usable shape -- cheap, easy and I'm recycling at the same time :)
