I finished the weaving, now I will need to finish the scarf. I think the scarf turned out ok, though I am not a 100% satisfied. The lines are not parallel and the spaces are not too even either …

After finishing the plain scarf, I figured I’d start with something more demanding – a plain pattern. The yarn in natural is Alpaca and the purple one is some sockyarn left overs. I hope the Alpaca is not shrinking once I am washing it … so far it is coming along lovely. I do think of stitching a bunny at each end, but will have to wait and see …

FINISHED – Woven Scarf 27/01/2012

Life has been really busy again, so I did not even get to talk about my latest hobby – weaving. In September, hubby gave me an Ashford loom for our anniversairy. I did not get to use it since that was the time we moved. Now I finally managed to start weaving. My first project was a plain scarf.


I used three rows of knots for the ends because it looked really cute and crochet around the border to hide not so nice edges most beginner weavers have. The scarf turned out lovely.
