I wanted to start a new weaving project. The only problem was that I still had something on the loom. Nothing like a little incentive to get the weaving juices flowing!
We came home from vacation yesterday. Laundry is done, grocery shopping is done, everyone is just hanging out relaxing. I have decided to weave.
This scarf was so fun and easy to make. The yarn did all the work – all I did was go up several sizes for the needle and knit away.
I like my scarves a little longer than the norm. I like to be able to wrap them and still have plenty left over hanging down.
This yarn has great texture – bits of string and bits of ribbon alternating.
It just looks so delicate!
This one worked up very quickly and I completely love the outcome!
This scarf has been off of the loom for quite awhile now!!
All I had to do was trim the fringe and cut threads. But…it sat in the mending pile for months!!! This will be a nice one for winter.
I really like the way this came out. I love the contrast of the light and the dark.
She is trying to talk me out of the scarf!!
It’s pretty cute…
You can also wrap it around your face as protection from the cold :o) But…this is a heavy scarf and the ends pull down on both sides, so if you like to wear it wrapped once around your neck, you can feel a little strangled after a little while.
I found a cute scarf pattern, Scarf that Sparkles, online on the redheart website. Since I had the yarn in my stash and I liked the way it looked I decided to start it.
I’m not quite sure, now that I’ve started knitting, that I like it – my husband said this part in the picture reminds him of a poodle, but it is fun to knit. Knitting with the pompom yarn is fun!
The weaving on this fun scarf was finished quite awhile ago, but I needed to weave in ends and cut the fringe to the desired length. Why does the finishing take so much longer than the actual weaving? But no matter, without further ado, here is my fun, soft and colorful scarf.
More color! You can’t have enough color!
