A Woven Rainbow

scarfwoven

I warped this project back in October when I finished my first woven scarf (that I did in my Weaving 101 class). However, life got busy and I didn’t have time to finish working on it. Finally, I decided to finish it – as I needed my loom for a work project that I am now working on. I used my 20” Ashford Knitter’s Loom for this project and 3.82 skeins of Berroco Versa, which is a discontinued Berroco yarn made of 50% Cotton 50% Acrylic. It’s a bulky weight yarn. (14.0 sts = 4 inches). I had a lot of fun with the colors in this project. It’s a super long scarf as you can see, and I love it. Some friends of mine think it might look awesome as a table runner. Being made of Acrylic & Cotton that might be a good idea. Otherwise, it’s nice and lightweight even though it’s long. 8” wide by 84” long (not including the fringe). I still haven’t decided what I will do with the fringe. Oh, weaving is fun! (And quick with bulky yarn)

So pretty! I haven't caught the weaving bug yet. Maybe at retirement ;)
