Scarves 2 & 3!

We just got back from vacation and I am way behind in everything. I am still trying to catch up. So, in the mean time, I am going to show you my other woven scarves.This was actually my 3rd project, so I am going a little out of order. As I said before, there was to be one finished scarf for my class, Weaving 1. That was the red one I blogged about a few weeks ago. This one was done all by myself. A week before our final class, I wanted to make sure that I could make a warp, sley the loom and basically do everything by myself. All the other projects, I have warped the loom under my teacher’s watchful eye and her explicit instructions.I used one skein of Yarntini Self Striping Sock Yarn in the colorway, Grape Ape, for both the warp and weft. With a self striping yarn, I didn't know what to expect. It turned out really well and striped perfectly. As you can see, Miss Melody has claimed the scarf as her own. She has been obsessed with the color purple recently so I was more than happy to give it to her. I am sure she won't mind if I borrow it every once in a while.
This was my second project. It's super long and super soft. Great for those very cold days when I can wrap this scarf several times around my neck and face.The yarn is Pigeonroof Studios Siren Two Sock in the colors: Lettuce and Icicle. One skein of each color. I used both colors to make the warp in a striped sequence. The weaving was randomly done with both colors.

Melody looks gorgeous in the first scarf, such beautiful colors together. I think you have found your calling weaving scarves as you do such great colors together and they look so beautiful!

That is easily the cutest scarf model I have ever seen! If you set up shop, you could sell a million of those things with photos like this. ;)

The scarves are turning out so nuicely! You should set up one weekend at the Flea.

Love the new banner!

Your new blog design is so pretty and simple! I love it.

Your scarves are amazing! I'm still recovering from my broken noro scarf and haven't had a chance to warp and sley my loom again. For my next project I think I'm going to keep it simple and just use one skein of Plucky MCN fingering for the warp and weft. :)
