The weaving books I've read lately recommend that you do a sample before beginning a project. I'm not that organized and.....I don't want to put in the time and effort. I decided to use colored pencils to help me make a decision on design. I kinda knew what I wanted but I figured it would be easier if I put the plan on paper.
I had to give some thought as to where I was going to do my warping to get the length I needed. Fortunately I have a folding table that works perfect and was able to adjust the distance to another table that I attached my warping peg to.

The next step is to carefully and with even tension, wind the warp onto the back beam.

To more easily thread the loom, I moved it to a normal height table.
|Ready to Thread|
I threaded the loom and tied it under even tension to the front beam.

Begin weaving using scrap yarn to spread the warp evenly.

I forgot to photograph taking the table runner off the loom and knotting and trimming the fringe.

And....ta da....the finished table runner.

Total time: 6 hours
Hope you had a good day.
