This is run #2 of this series. This time I’m using brighter colors and a little bit of a heavier beat to test the hand in comparison to the first run. Pictures to come!

About 3/4 of the way through the third scarf my loom's electronic interface stopped working:(  Louet has been fabulous about fixing it so quickly and I should have it back Tuesday!

Notes: 

The above measurments are w/o the 5" fringe on all sides.  This is woven and fringe tied while still on the loom.  When the blanket comes off the loom you only need to tie off the fringe attached to the front tie-on beam.  I also wove a small car blanket on the remanding warp.  Measurments to come.  Blanket was threaded 2 threads per dent based on 15 epi (so 30 threads per 1 inch ).  Worked best to wind double.  I doubled the height of the block to make them larger.  Make sure you have a strong thread to wrap your fringe around.  I used a shoe lace tied to back and front beams.  This is a Yarn Barn of Kansas pattern.

Notes: 

I wanted to thread up the loom in a straight draw and get some simple results to fiddle with some finer threads.  I came up with a couple of twill patterns and wove them right up.  At the next show two sold right off the bat!  :)  Color on black is pretty popular.  I wove two scarves with hand dyed varigated yarn purchased from Just Our Yarn (because they are some fabulous girls!!!) and two were woven with solid tencel.

Additional Source Info: 

Echo weave is one of my favorites because of the visual stimulation.  There is a special magic that happens when you combine/echo two colors in the warp.  These four are my latest creation!  I can't wait to get started weaving them!!!

Notes: 

When I took it off the loom I thought the sett was too close, but after washing it in some Soak and laying it out to dry overnight, it has a nice hand, some good movement on the bias, and I think will be a warm and lovely scarf.  It remains to be seen how the alpaca will begin to full together as it's worn.
