It’s damp and chilly in the Aerie this morning. I am glad to be wearing a scarf around my neck, and even more glad to be weaving another one. I am sampling for the Misted Hills coat project by weaving a scarf that uses all the yarns that I plan to use in the coat.
I like the direction this is taking. The fabric will be soft and flexible. The warp is Merino/Tencel from WEBS, set at 10 epi, except for the accent stripe at 20epi
The weft shown above is predominately the Merino/Tencel, with accents of unspun roving and handspun art yarn. The darkest accents are a bit of sock yarn, whose origin escapes me. I think it was from Metaphor Yarns. I am still looking for a yarn in soft grey, white and pale lavender. There needs to be more mist in this fabric.
Yes, I am still annoyed at the beater on my loom, even though I have it under control right now. I’m debating whether I can have one of the heavy maple parts replaced with a replica in lighter weight wood. Cedar? I am also considering the purchase of a SAORI loom. I don’t enjoy having a loom that I struggle with when I am tired.
I only threaded two harnesses for this project. At least the treadling is much lighter this way. I am not planning to work any patterning into this design.
