It's never too early or late for a scarf!

I love it!  I hope my hubby's cousin Chris loves it, too!!
It's super long, and super soft!  I can't wait for him to use it this winter and report on how it works!

Chris' Scarf

It's a little warm to enjoy such a cold-weather scarf, but winter will be here before we know it!

This scarf is for my hubby's cousin Chris.  He is a big and tall guy, so I made this warp extra long (3 yards) so he would feel toasty warm and have plenty of extra room to wrap it around his neck a few times!

I let him do all the picking of colors and design, however, I saw this combination WAY before he put it together!  This is EXACTLY what I had in mind for him.  It's never ceases to amaze me that there is a weave for everyone, and if you know them well enough, you can pinpoint it before them!

Washed and ready to sew!

These are so colorful and washed up so nicely!


I love being able to see the other side once they are off the loom!

I usually keep it somewhat of a surprise until it gets off.  Sometimes I cheat and try to look, but this time I left it until the end.

I think the other side looks good!

Onward to sewing, separating, serging, and sewing again!

Pulled off!

 I love these!

I did the very last little segment with 20/2 in plain weave as an experiment.  It gives me some good ideas of something I would like to work with in the future... as if my list wasn't big enough as it is!  

This would have made a very fun towel, too:

Next up, hemming!  I have a little bit of a back-log on my hemming!

To go astray.

To lose clarity or coherence of thought or expression.

Colorful and Cheerful

This weave makes me feel so cheerful!

How does it make you feel?


Feel the cheer!

Another one from Pinterest

Here is my latest obsession on Pinterest!  I feel entranced by this pattern!

Here it is up close:

A word of warning though, make sure to follow the pattern exactly!  Note the treadling is 1-7, and not 1-8 like one might think!  You get an extra floating section when you treadle 1-8.  Here is a comparison picture of the right (top-dark blue) and wrong (bottom-light green) treadling patterns:

So far, it's a fun pattern!

...and never to be repeated again!!!

As you can see in this picture, the hat is the original design (top) and the scarf is the mimicked design (bottom):

My cousin wanted the designs to look similar, but wanted the hounds tooth design to be a little bit smaller.  Overall, it's a little bit more green than I expected it to be, but I'm just glad it's done!!  It also ended up being the perfect width after I redid the sett.  It is now 6.5".

Now I can kick back and celebrate!!

 ... Very close!!

But not quite!  I think I'm going to take this out and re-set it to 20 epi instead of 24 epi.  I think then it will be even better!
