Writings from 3 sisters, who love to garden, do scrapbooking, fiber arts and sometimes have an opinion.

It may be spring and our weather is suppose to be in the 70's but I am weaving wool. We bought some Brown Sheep wool yarn, thinking it might work for rugs but really it is a soft feeling wool and my husband rejected it for rugs, so I am using it for scarves. These will be sub-arctic weather scarves. The only thing I am not liking about the pattern is that I am bringing the second color up one side. I am twisting the yarn every second stitch and I think I should have done it every 8 stitches. You live and learn and since I did not make a sample, this is just the way it will be. This pattern is from "A Weaver's Book of 8-Shaft Patterns" page 24.  I like this pattern because I can change the pattern by using a different treading and tie up. This is the first pattern on the page (#74) and I think I will try # 75 next since I do not have to change the tie up. I probably only have enough for 2 long scarves on this warp. We also ordered a color called "cherry delight", it looked like a deep red but when it came it was a bright pink. I think the pink would look good in this pattern too.  Enjoy, Amy
Notice the selvedge on this side, not liking how
it is looking with the carry over of the yarn.
Maybe after I am finished it will look better.
