    I agree. Weaving is a really cool technique, but it stresses me to no end. I'll do it, but I'd rather cheat with a photo wrap. :)

    Just looking at that weaving video i have to say NO.... LOL
    I can see that it is not complicated, but man just setting it up takes forever

    I like doing weaves however I find the hardest to be single color in size a filtered very closely by color change with 3 or more layers. The color changes are just harder to hide well whereas pulling #57 of 100 same color threads without a loom is nearly impossible. With a loom its still tricky.
