My first - and only - weaving!

I made this in 1976, when I was just a little girl, for the US Bicentennial. Other than cotton-loop potholders (which I think everyone makes at some point), I believe it’s the only weaving I’ve ever done.

I made it up as I went; it’s somewhat scratchy acrylic yarn, but I was very, VERY proud of it. I seem, vaguely, to remember that I actually made my own cardboard-box loom to do it, too!

I’m going through my house, and getting rid of Things. Thanks to the internet, I can save photos of the Things in several places, thus ensuring I’ll remember them, without actually having to KEEP them.
