My loom sat empty for many months as my so called part time job took over this spring and summer. But when autumn arrived, so did the need to weave. Not wanting to spend lots of money on new yarn (although I would LOVE to do so and when does any fiber person have enough fiber/yarn?), I dressed the loom with a warp that I wound several years ago.
I had wound about 108 ends each of green and black originally intending the scarves (2) to be black on one half of the warp and green on the other half and then alternate the same colors in the weft every 3″ or so to make color blocks. Instead I decided to just alternate the green and black and wove one using green weft and the second using black . And this is the result:
While weaving the scarves, both in plain weave, I was reminded of the many wonderful combinations of color and pattern that can be created using this simple woven structure. More later on this subject!
