I wove a scarf this week. It was a quick and easy project and I'm pretty happy with the outcome.
It all started a few months ago when I bought some yarn that I'd instantly fallen in love with and knew immediately that I wanted to weave with it. The blues and browns are pretty. The yarn is "Serenity Garden" and the colorway is "Twilight". This project took two skeins for the warp and one and a half skeins for the weft. It's done in plain weave with 12 ends per inch.
As I wove it, the colors in the yarn created stripes and a slight plaid-like feel.
The finished size is 8 1/2" by 90", plus 5 1/2" of fringe on each end (101" total). The long length will make it possible to wrap it around my neck a couple of times for more warmth, or drape nicely for a pop of color and texture.
Such pretty colors!
I love twisted fringe and have been wanting to try it for a long time. I finally did it! But, now I know why there are fringe twisting tools. My fingers got tired very quickly from all the twisting.
The weather forecast is showing hope for cooler, fall-like weather. Maybe, I'll get to wear it soon!
