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.
I got a little carried away measuring my warp and ended up using an entire ball of Silk Garden Sock resulting in 104 warp ends.
Although the scarf would be wider than planned, I decided to roll with it.
We did the math for a 10 dent reed, but ended up using an 8 dent reed when we started warping the loom. (The teacher felt the yarn needed more breathing room.)
The finished scarf ended up 11 1/4″ wide x 5’10″ long with fringe 6″ or 7″ long. I think it’s wonderful, especially considering it’s only my second weaving project.
People in class said it reminds them of coals, a fireplace, or a sunset. It reminds me of the autumn foliage.
