Problem Solved

What to do for my next weaving project was solved for me.  My son, Alan, called last night and asked "how long does it take you to weave a scarf?".  Answer, on the ridid heddle loom it will take 1 day if I start early enough, why?  A friend at work is retiring and he would really like to give her one of my hand woven scarfs.  After playing 20 questions we settled on a drapey tonal green scarf.  No bright colors, no intricut patterns just a nice simple scarf.

Do I have the yarns in my stash for this scarf?  Of course not, so off I go to Clinch River Yarn Co.  To see Sandy and pick out the perfect yarn for this project.  We came up with Berrocco, Folio 65% Superfine Alpaca and 35% Rayon for the warp (12epi dye lot #20) and Madelinetosh hand dyed yarns, Tosh Merino light 100% Superwash Merino Wool, colorway Jade, for the weft.


I think it is looking pretty good.  I do hope it is what Alan is looking for.
