Weaving

Weaving is not my strongest point but I had a go!

I made a small makeshift "loom" on cardboard and used many different textured yarns. Continuing with my theme of red to represent the heat of global warming, white for melting polar ice caps and blue for the oceans and rising sea levels - just trying it out in different media

Ooooh! This is lovely Carolyn! I don't suppose you could share how you made a loom from cardboard please? I've got a large peg loom which I haven't used much and I've thought of buying a child's loom but haven't done that yet. Cardboard sounds interesting. I love the layers and the different textured yarns you've used.
