It’s official. I love my loom.
Here’s my first project – finished, washed, and ready for its close up:
Project: Simple woven scarf
Yarn: One hank of Socks that Rock Lightweight in Zein colorway
Details: Kromski Harp rigid heddle loom, 10-dent heddle, 72 ends, 90” warp length. I worked until I ran out of yarn, about 56” total before washing.
Is it perfect? Not by a long shot. Do I care? Not in the least. Mr. M has already claimed this as his own, and has worn it on several occasions.
I’m amazed at the way this yarn worked up. Look at those stripes! Variegated yarns can be troublesome to knit with, because they tend to pool or flash. Some folks like this, I am not a fan. Weaving with these yarns, though, is a whole different story. I can’t wait to dig through my stash and pull out a few variegated hanks that I’ve avoided, just to see what happens when I weave them up.
Weaving Project #1 – Success! Now on to the next one.
