A bit o' weaving

I hope everyone in the US is having a great Thanksgiving.

Fire and Ice Scarf

It's been quite a long time since I've had the urge to break out the loom, but the colder weather proves to be a great motivator. I had bought a few skeins of Socks That Rock at Rhinebeck with the specific aim of using them in pooling scarves. I will never get tired of making these scarves. It's fairly easy to do but it looks so unique. This scarf uses STR mediumweight in the warp and a white sportweight alpaca in the weft. The resulting scarf is lightweight and just a little fuzzy. I used the 10 dent heddle.

Sunrise Woven Scarf

For this one, I used some of my own naturally dyed MCN worsted weight yarn to make a heavier scarf. The colors remind me of sunrise and after washing the scarf is super soft and cuddly.

Both of these woven scarves (plus several more) are in the shop.
