Pop goes the potholder

As I tried to finish the edges of the piece, it popped off the loom and some of the loops are unweaving themselves.

Having seen Noreen Crone-Findlay's video on weaving on potholder loom I noticed Noreen used a chopstick to help stabilize the piece. So I thought I would use a chopstick to recover the piece. Here I have restored the weave using the chopstick to catch/hold the loops.

Here is the completed piece. As we see, the elastic of the loops reduces the piece about 50 percent. Time to start the next one.

Have a good day!
