Echo weave using a straw and brown in the warp and a different color weft for each of four scarves!!!
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.
Obviously I also did one of the four towels in a tabby, for gingham. The sett was a bit too tight for this, so I didn't quite get it squared. Still, I think it looks cute.
Pattern is from Weaver's Craft Magazine, Vol 1, Issue 2, p.8. Wound 4.25 yd warp for 4 towels.
When in doubt, weave towels! Rather than go to old faithful draft, I wanted to try something new. I modified a draft from Vav 04/06 and weaving my way through 11 yards right now.
Full story at my blog... I like them so will wind another warp and do them again in different colours...
Habu A-4 Acorn natural dyed with madder root border, will throw madder root as weft, this will be a warm color piece, might be just the thing to donate to the fire department for a fund raiser.
