The summer after I graduated from college, my mom borrowed a large floor loom from her local fiber arts guild or adult education service, I'm not quite sure. It sat in her living room, and my godmother, who is a wonderful weaver, helped us warp it and design woven shawls to make. We were motivated to finish the weaving, since we had to give the loom back, but after they were finished and off the loom, they sat in my mom's house for over two years, waiting for us to finish the fringes.
When my mom came to visit a few weeks ago, she brought the shawls (and a fringe-twisting tool she borrowed from my godmother), and I finished mine! It's pretty large, and very soft and warm. If I remember right, the yarn is some sort of tencel blend, so it has a lovely shiny sheen.
