Finished: Woven Noro Scarf

Yesterday was the official last day of my weaving class. (People who didn’t finish can still use the studio, but have to arrange time to meet with the teacher.)

I finished my Noro Silk Garden Sock scarf just in time!

The plan was for a 6″ x 5′ scarf with 6″ of fringe worked in a 2/2 twill. I was supposed to have 76 warp ends.

Although the scarf would be wider than planned, I decided to roll with it.

    Oh wow – your scarf turned out beautifully! It’s great to see it in its entirely, especially after the closeups while in progress. It’s really professional looking too. I have yet to try weaving, perhaps sometime in the future.

      It was fun and challenging. I’m already plotting my next project!

      As I expected, my husband ran off with the scarf. :-D
