The weaving is going splendidly. I finished the scarf that has been on the loom for months now. It feels so good to get this off of the loom. I wish I had made it a little longer, since it’s not the longest scarf. But the width is good, next time I’m going to make it a little narrower.
The yarn is Miss Babs Yummy Sock in the color Zombie Reunion. Quite a nice bit of yarn, but I made a few mistakes when I wove this. I didn’t get the length I want and the hem I did on the top and bottom wasn’t tight enough. But overall it’s a nice pattern, but I don’t think that I would do this one again. But the pickup stick pattern was a nice exercise in learning new skills on the loom.
With that being done I have already planned the next two things I am going to weave. One is going to be a nice long and decently wide scarf out of the Machete Shoppe Dirty DK in Purrmaid. I already did the calculations for the project and I think I’ll have plenty for it.
The next will be a super wide and long scarf out of the hand dyed bamboo cotton yarn. But I need to actually warp up the loom first. I’m thinking I’m going to need to get a warping mill, direct warping is nice. However with the restrictions I have on space makes it a little difficult. I’ll start looking into that while I get ready to warp up the loom.
