Happy Halloween


Last FO (finished object) of the month.  I was surprised I was able to get this done.  Here’s the first of the scarves for E.

I used Valley Yarns 2/10 Merino Tencel (Colrain Lace) from Webs, set at 16 epi.  The draft is from The Handweaver’s Pattern Directory on page 50, top left corner.

Being as I had the Harrisville all fixed up, I used it to weave the scarf.  I wanted to test it out, see how well my fixes actually worked.  That was how I found out that the ratchet on the back beam was put on backwards.  This made for very slow going weaving because the back brake kept slipping, causing the beam to roll and tension to be lost.  If I had used the Gilmore, I’d probably have had this done in a day.  I wound the warp on Wednesday night, got it on the loom (using f2b) and wove a little over 3 feet on Thursday, and finished weaving and twisted fringe on Friday.

Normally, I pick my work to death, finding every little flaw.  I’m happy to say, you’re not going to see any picking with this one.  I think it’s my favorite FO to date!  There are a few more pics on my Flickr page if you’d like to see them.

    Your scarf looks great! So glad you got it finished so quickly! (Much faster than I was able to comment on it for example!)
