finished woven scarf!

I am too tired to say much but I wanted to share the photos of my finished scarf from the weaving class I took.

The edges are, of course, not perfect but I was having a problem with the front edge of the weaving pulling at an angle but that doesn’t seem to show in the finished product.

I loaned my loom to Eliza because I spent all my time weaving this week and was very behind on homework (I think I caught up tonight). That means I won’t be warping on for another project immediately but I have some ideas, particularly to see if I can get a skein of solid Sock Candy to go with the hand-dyed one I am hoping will be left when I’m done with a hat I’m knitting so I can warp with the hand-dyed and weave with the solid. The instructor had a scarf that was made sort of like that and it looked great.

    That looks amazing! I’ve wanted to try weaving but haven’t been able to add an additional craft to my knitting.

      Thanks, Megan! I don’t know if weaving will stick but I feel like it has a better chance now that I’ve felt successful in a project. 🙂

      Thanks! Maybe if I warp a few more times and actually feel like that isn’t too boring, I will be. Right now my loom is still with Eliza, though, because I need to be focusing on schoolwork, not weaving!
