This week’s “on the loom/at the wheel” includes a bonus, Thanksgiving week! (when I was too stuffed like a turkey to doing any blogging…this blog is a demanding taskmaster when there is pie to eat…)
Last week I finished the most orange of orange scarves. Let this be a lesson to all ye who shall shop for bamboo yarn using computer monitors. I seriously thought this would be a lovely red when I ordered it. What? Yes, I’m too trusting. I still like it though, even if the colors are intense. We’ll see if anyone else does…
I also think it looks pretty with the other scarves I have finished!
THIS week on the loom is yet another scarf, but lest you start to feel bored…it’s NOT A TWILL pattern!! I’m doing something new to me. I’ve seen M’s and O’s woven, even helped a student create some napkins in a simple 4 shaft version, but have just never woven it myself. Situation rectified!
I love it. Super interesting. The other side is just as cool, maybe cooler (it might be that the scarf is being woven upside down…again…but I’ll never admit it). I always suspected I’d like this structure (and apparently, I’m very clever in my suspicions:) Can’t wait to see it off the loom and after a nice bath:)
