Second time’s a charm. After a poorly warping my first scarf, I had some warp threads shred which resulted in a very short scarf. This time everything went right and I have a full sized scarf ready for Christmas gift giving.
I enjoy this sort of weaving, simple but creating a neat result. Having only two shuttles I’m sorta limited on my plaid options and I haven’t had the nerve to try out too many lace patterns, in part because I don’t have any pick-up sticks.

Project Name: Second Try Houndstooth
Draft: Grab and Go Bag by Liz Gipson in Weaving Made Easy
Recipient: Probably Grampa
Yarn: Knitpicks Palette in Salsa Heather and Bittersweet
New Skills: Actually not getting my warp threads shredded by using paper as warp separator.
- Yarn: Palette has such great colors (they recently went up to 150 shades) but I don’t enjoy knitting stranded colorwork so this a great way to use it. It is a bit rough but it is perfect for weaving.
- Draft: So easy and yet creates such a complex finished project.
Re-Weave?: Yep, I already have another one warped up and another 5 or so of color sets to go.
