Yesterday, while my daughter had her play date, I pulled out my 32″ harp rigid heddle loom and started weaving… correctly.  The reason why I had the big pile of unwoven yarn (a few days ago) was because I was moving the heddle from the up to the neutral position. I should have pulled the heddle to the down position.Since I kept the heddle in netural position, that meant the yarn wasn’t being crossed and so no weaving was going on. I knew this on the day of the weaving fail, but I just did not have time to fix the issue. It was late and I really needed to get to bed.

I will say the first day was a teachable moment, for my daughter. She saw the warp fail and she also could see how I was handling the situation. I did not give up. I told her tomorrow was another day and I’d fix the issue then. She thinks I did a really great job for my first piece. I think so to. I’ll definitely keep my first woven project so I can come back to it later after I’ve been weaving for some time. I know I’ll see improvements.

Today, while my daughter and I are having a creative time together. I think I’ll weave some washcloths. That is, after I finish knitting my father’s lined thrummed hat.
