Can you even begin to guess what this is? This lovely mess was the weaving on my Scriggs 7 foot Adjustable Loom. It has been on my loom for a very long time. I had made a mistake and spent several hours over the last few months trying to fix it. My lovely weaving teacher has moved away so I couldn't ask her. I took apart many rounds of the weaving and still couldn't fix it. I left it alone for a couple of months hoping that it would decide to fix itself. It didn't. I talked nicely to it, I scolded it and still nothing. I planted plants, I knit, I drove my kids everywhere in the state of Florida and simply tried to ignore my loom. I have to say it is a bit hard to ignore a 7 foot loom in your bedroom. I vacuumed around it, and dusted it. I cleaned the carpet around it.
Finally I just had to take off the weaving and start over. And do you know what happened? I found out how I made the mistake quite quickly. Actually it was a simple mistake made when adding in a new ball of yarn. I have written down what to do now so if I happen to take a break from weaving, as I am sure to do (life is busy), I will know how to add the yarn the right way. It is amazing how much time I lost by just ignoring the whole situation. Sometimes the easiest answers come from starting over from the beginning.
