I Am So Ready!

I am so ready for spring. We finally got out for a mountain bike ride.  I look like I’m bundled up for the cold, but it actually got warm enough to shed the jacket.IMG_2781My rigid heddle loom has gotten a workout lately.  I found a pattern called Brook Bouquet that looked interesting.  This scarf was made from Caron Simply Soft Country Blue.  I have a niece who is  allergic to wool, so I like trying out new patterns with acrylic yarn.  And she gets a new scarf.  (Or I might just keep this one.)IMG_2791  I tried the same pattern using a solid white yarn for warp and self striping yarn for weft.  It looks like spring.  Skinny scarves are great for spring and summer wear.IMG_2787I’m hooked on Hokett looms!  I’ve been weaving on my Hokett loom.  I am hooked on these little mug rugs.  And, it is a great way to use up leftover sock yarn.  I was also trying out a new-to-me weaving technique called  3 color interlocking using weft clasped.  I have another scarf in mind for this technique.IMG_2788I’m not sure if this was such a good idea, but SOMEBODY will like this mug rug.  It’s high visibility sock yarn from my hand knitted cycling socks.IMG_2785Duffy doesn’t think so.IMG_2793See ya,

    Fabulous projects! I love that little loom. I can see how it is addicting.

  3. The scarves are so pretty! I especially like the white one! I just heard about clasped weft and it is interesting you are trying it out now-cool how that works!
