Pat's Knitting and Quilting
April 2, 2012
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!
Yarn: One skein Misti Alpaca Hand Paint Sock Yarn - 437 yards (50% Alpaca, 30% Merino Wool, 10% Silk, 10% Nylon) Color: HS21 Northern Lights
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 :)
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!
