Dusting off the old weaving loom

I bought this Frame Loom several years ago for a sweet $25.  I have a floor loom (4'x4'), but I wanted to do some very small weavings and that loom was overkill.  
I finally got this one out, dusted it off and started in.  
First, to measure out the warp.... 
Oops, I'm a bit rusty, so I made a couple of mistakes.  No problem, I'll just undo what I did and start over....
 And in my haste and idealism, I created a tangled mess. About 3 hours later (yes, I'm that frugal that I couldn't bring myself to just throwing it away), it was ready to put on the loom.
Oh boy, oh boy, this is going to be fun!

Hi Christie: Thanks for visiting Tanglewood Threads. I am a novice weaver and have a very small loom. I too am interested in making small weavings. Seeing your post might get me doing it finally!

Oh, boy, I can't WAIT to see what you do with this!

I had no idea you were into weaving now. Sounds like it's time for lunch and catching up?
