Notes: 

this is planned to become a baby poncho for a new member of humanity due in a few weeks (or less). right now, I'm a bit stuck, since it got too short for a classic poncho (the one where you take two rectangles and then sew them together again to get a kind of square)

edit: it's finished now. about 40 cm from left to right. I cut the sides and added some tussah silk to keep it from unravelling

Notes: 

It has such a lovely texture and is warm without being heavy or bulky. It would look great on a man or a woman, being such a well-rounded scarf. Its really a beautiful display of my talents: dyeing, spinning, and weaving; its also a grand example of these dieing arts. Whoever wears this can wear it proudly.

Tried this on a 10 dent and decided it was a little too open. Very hard to control selvedges with the superwash so I think this yarn would work better on a 12 dent

Notes: 

 My friend Kathy and I originally dyed this yarn with goldenrod flowers, but it was a bit "dull."  When another friend was having a bunch of us over to share an indigo pot a couple months ago, I decided to overdye this.  I dipped about 2/3 of the yarn "as is."  The other third I wrapped for Ikat.  I dipped it once with all the wraps in place.  Then I removed about half of them and dipped it again so I have some sections that stayed yellow, some that are a light green (were wrapped for the first dip and unwrapped for the second) and the majority of it dark green.

I warped the two yarns together and threaded them every other heddle.  For weft, I switched back and forth randomly between the solid yarn and the Ikat.

Regular fringe, cut at a diagonal.
