So, you know all the lessons I learned from my Apricot Jam Ring? You can read all about it here, but basically I learned about the importance of a good warp separator, not tugging on my warp, not beating to much and how to make selveges look tidy, oh and actually doing the warp math properly so you know how much yarn you are acutally going to use!
So I took all these lessons and applied them to a new scarf, this one made out of some bulky yarn hanging around in my stash that I knew I was never going to knit because I am really not a huge fan of variegated yarns (although as I mentioned I am warming to them thanks to my Visions of Sugar Plum … House Elves?, although that is just for socks).
I must confess, I am quite pleased with myself and the scarf because it worked and I’m starting to see the possibilities that this little loom holds within itself and my stash.
– Details –
Project Name: Purple People Warmer
Pattern: Plain Weave, 5dent reed
Recipient: Dunno, I may actually put this in the gift box because while I like it, I see more of these in the future
Yarn: Fleece Artist Big Merino (discontinued), 1 skein Purple, 1 skein Purple/Green/Brown
- Doing things right!: Basically there were no new skills, I just managed to get the skills I learned last time right.
- Yarn: It is too bad this yarn was discontinued, it would be great for weaving more Christmas scarves, at $8.99 for 100gm/100m it was a really good deal. But I think this was a noble use for the last of the yarn.
Re-Weave?: I really like the way the scarf turned out, if I can find a comparable yarn there will be more of these scarves for gifting.
