Notes: 

I'm very new to weaving (just started about 6 weeks ago) and am hopelessly addicted! The lengths/widths on loom listed above are approximations, since I didn't make note of them. The finished length/width are the size the scarf is now (not including 3 1/2" of fringe at each end) after hand washing and air drying. This was my 3rd "real" project (not just test samples)...and my best yet. I was looking for a great texture to weave with my beautiful yarn, and really liked the windowpane look of the warp and weft floats. I got the basic idea for this project from the Schacht Spindle website under "Yearning to Weave". NOTE: FYI...not sure why, but my yarn specs aren't being saved...I used Malabrigo Rios Pure Merino Superwash for both warp (Azul Profundo) and weft (Zarzamora).

You did a great job, and the patterning shows off this lovely yarn well. You are off to a great start!

Congrats! I'm not believing

Congrats! I'm not believing this is your 3rd project.  You did a very nice job and your beat looks very even.  Well done.  So glad to hear you love weaving.  I agreee, it's addictive and one of the few "healthy" addictions.

ps-don't go looking at my projects.  Weavolution is my mistress and my projects have diminished as the site has required more attention.  We are over 7500 strong and growing.

Beautiful!  I have been trying to find a draft for the window pane but haven't found it yet to make a scarf for my hubby.
