stole

I'm very happy to show y'all my first big weaving project :-)                      

It's a stole woven with 40/2 cotton thread on a 4 heddle loom.                                      

I've learnt so much working on this and also recorded my mistakes throughout the process. My goal for this year is try and improve my skills.Hope I'll be able to do that if I don't make the same mistakes again.

Have a wonderful weekend!
