OK. This is a great idea ... I think!
I'm a beginner. I took a 5 day class from Tom Jipson at Harrisville Designs at the beginning of the summer. He is a terrific teacher and the location can hardly be nicer! I have been playing with my looms (yes I already own more than 1) making "samplers" since then. So, now it is time to actually make something from beginning to end.
So that is my dare. I will plan and create a shawl using my 45" JL Hammet loom. On October 31st it will be ready to mail to my sister for her birthday.
