Thing-a-Week #10

I unexpectedly received a rigid heddle loom this week from my awesome husband for an early birthday present, so my Thing this week was pretty much decided for me. This is my first try at a woven scarf with the loom. I’d made one earlier in class, but didn’t get to finish it. This one is full length, 8″ x 65″.

Thing a Week #10: Woven Scarf

I didn’t use my best yarns on it since I knew I’d probably screw a lot up. And I did… the selvage edges are pretty bad and there are a few mistakes where I wasn’t watching my warp. I did use up the yarn I spun for Thing #9 last week, though! That’s on the warp, along with some navy Lion Brand wool. The weft is an old skein of marine blue Candide wool yarn, a little scratchy, but it was good to practice with. I can only get better, right?

    Right. I dream of making woven throws and stoles. How long does it take to weave a scarf 8″x 65″ long?
