Weaving Progress

This afternoon I started working on my weaving project.  This is my first attempt and I found the repetitive motions soothing.  The yarn is soft, and feels nice in my hands.  It's a gentle craft. Most of my yarn is a bit thin for this project but I didn't really want to rush out and buy a whole lot of new materials.  I did a few rows of plain weave to anchor the project before adding two rows of long tassels.  I may trim these.  Then I wanted to experiment with some stripes and triangles.  I have since filled in the triangle shaped hole with some nubby pink yarn.  I'm liking it so far!  I think a couple of stripes of white wool roving would look good, and maybe some other white, chunky, textured yarn.  Looks like I'm going shopping after all!
