Sometimes a project is more than a project, when many hands are on a project it can make things more fun, in this case, this scarf got woven on by quite a few people at indigodragonfly’s Haliburton Highlands Fling back in August. I brought along my Cricket loom to expose more people to the fun of Rigid Heddle weaving.
As someone who has trouble with knitting stranded colorwork, I find that weaving is my way to play with colors and combinations, and in this case highlighting (and using up) some multi and tonal colorways from a local fiber vendor.
I think this one is going to the gift box, it is really nice, but a girl only needs so many scarves.

Yarn: Pondering Rock Farms Bulky in “Eggplant and Grass” and “Ochre” (The colorways are unnamed but these seemed fitting
Modifications: None, just a plain weave scarf (which I love making)

Re-Weave?: Yeppers, pairing a multi with a solid makes for a great looking scarf.
