Erin Curry art- Haystack rooftop

In a basket weaving class I found myself making cloth.
Erin Curry art- Haystack studio deskBut oh I became a scientist before I was a weaver. See that tiny weaving in front? It was a study from a washcloth with selvedge on all four sides, beginning with the weaving the tool was created sight unseen but signature present. Study revealed it was woven on a simple frame loom warped in a particular way not like an S but looped in interlocking Os. My little weaving came to be from nails in a board.
