…another scarf

IMG_5628

I repeated the same exact idea for Scarf #3 as I did for Scarf #2, with one small change: hemstitch. See how subtle the top of the fringe is? I like this hemstitch treatment way more than the overhand knots. Here are overhand knits, for comparison:IMG_5596 The warp is more Cascade 220 Superwash left over from a wedding blanket (this is the army green color from Jess’s blanket), and the weft is Interlacements Tiny Toes from very, very deep in my sock yarn stash. It’s 100% superwash and I would not use it for socks now.IMG_5630S1 picked this combo and it came out quite well. She wanted the exact same measurements. It’s 52 1/2” long and 5 7/8” wide. I used 32 grams of sock yarn and 37 grams of warp.

Next I might try warping double strands of fingering through my 8-dent heddle.

I finished the blue sweater but it hasn’t been photographed. One day, probably in the middle of summer, I’ll surprise you with it!

You are making weaving look very enticing! I've begun to craft my rationalization about how I could really use up stash if I invested in a loom, so I may be looking soon due to your enabling. Thank you! :-)

Those greens are beautiful. I love the hem edge on the new scarf. I don't know enough to describe why, but it looks neater and tidier and overall more professionally finished. Beautiful!
