Here's how my weaving looked at first:
Messy edges, uneven beating, skipped warps.
And at the end of many hours of practice:
Side by side:
The whole thing. While my warp wasn't many strands (not very wide), it was very long. So I just kept going. I used odds and ends from my stash, trying different fibers, colors and thicknesses.
I need to working on my finishing technique. I didn't hemstitch the ends, which prepares the ends of the project for fringe. My fringe here is messy and uneven because I just wanted to get it off the loom.
Tonight I'll warp for my next project: a scarf.
