I started in on making a loom this week. I'm stuck at attaching the heddles and learning a whole lot more jargon that comes with learning to weave. 

I made my first trip to Shuttles, Spindles and Skeins, too. I picked up some hemp, flax and seacell fiber to try out. I've never dyed plant fiber before, mainly because it's so much easier and safer to do wool and cheap enough to buy dyed plant fiber from others, but I may pick up some "real" dyes for this stuff. I'm really liking gray these days, paired up with something bright.
