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.
