So, I have two scarves now…
My cough is almost gone and I find myself nearly ready to tackle that hat germ-free again, lol (and ugh). But, I have two scarves for my trouble, so that's a plus.
Here they are together. They still need to be finished with their fringes and then wet finished as well. But they're off the loom. I bought some Craftsy classes on rigid heddle looming and the beginner one is supposed to have a couple options for fringes. So, I'm going to look into it before starting that. I think my next project is where the more advanced video comes in as I want to either try a color and weave technique or something textural.
You can see in the first one (the predominately orangier one) where I had more even beating at times and less even beating at other times…I blame that bug, lol. The second one is a bit more even. I believe the yarn was more suited to that reed.
One of these has a little more drape than the other and one is longer than the other. Really going to have to start paying attention to potential series. But, since these are stashbusters anyway, I'm not going to worry too much about that.
I like how they complement each other.
These are good practice for learning how to maintain neat selvedges and even beating (though it is definitely a work in progress here). But I have a couple other resources to try when I'm ready for something other than scarves. I found a beginner book that looks good called Weaving Made Easy by Liz Gipson that I could immediately download as well as a more in depth book called The Weaver's Idea Book: Creative Cloth On A Rigid Heddle Loom by Jane Patrick. These should definitely keep me busy when I com back to the loom for awhile.
Yes…Two scarves for the price of a chest cold.
Not bad, says I.
