A Bridal Shawl for a special bride!

 My first project on the triangle loom was making a bridal shawl for a very special bride. To say I was on a learning curve was an understatement but I managed to do okay. Included in the purchase of the loom was a tutorial DVD that was wonderful in learning this amazing way to weave with a continuous strand of weaving. There was a lot of freeze framing going on. I was under the gun because the mill was delayed in getting my fiber done which arrived with my order having been done all wrong. I am not happy with that mill right now or how they handled their error. So with just 10 days to get going I worked on this morning noon and night. It was fun and I am looking forward to working on the next one!
