I finally have the black warp on my loom. I had lots of help from my wonderful niece. This is the first time I have used the black. I have only had the natural warp. I thought I needed something darker because I had all of these bright fabrics to use. Now I have the rainbow rug done. It is 30 x 39. Macy would stand on the end and catch the shuttle and then throw it back to me. She also was great help on pushing the peddles. She'll make a great weaver someday!
