One Skein Woven Scarf

Kate (my daughter) picked out a beautiful skein of Misti Alpaca for her woven scarf. I had no idea what would happen with a handpainted skein of sock yarn used as warp and weft, but voila....plaid :)

I've figured out how to use my loom correctly so this scarf went easily and quickly. It is soft, beautiful and the drape is perfection itself - she loves it!

A close up of the hemstitched edge front and back before wash/block - I see the rows are still wobbly near the beginning - it gets better as I progress :)

Hand Woven Scarf

Just warped with some leftover handspun sock yarn and will use leftover Baby Silk as weft - My original idea when I got the loom, was to weave using leftover yarn and hopefully make a dent in those bins!
Also have 2 pair of mittens in progress using handspun - that's for the next post...
