With my Aran sweater off the needles, I am in the final throes of holiday knitting and weaving. I have two more F’ing deer hats to finish by Friday. Four dish towels are a twinkle in my eye on the loom and scarves abound. One finished, one warped. I have to keep moving because the thermometer read 14 degrees below 0 this morning.
I played with how tight to beat the strands on this scarf and ended up with nice color interplay.
I had envisioned a gold brown tweedy fabric but initially, when I packed the threads too tightly, it appeared black. So I loosened up and found the effect I sought. Next I embellished the ends with a Mexican Lace effect. Voila! I love it, in silky wool.
