WIP Wednesday -> Thursday
At any rate, here is a new shawl/scarf I put on the loom. The shorter warps are SO nice and easy. Not like the never-ending white one it took me forever to finish.
This is a boucle' warp, 800 lbs per yard, with tencel and fun yarn as weft. The fun yarn has all the colors of the boucle' plus gold, and has a little sparkle with it. It will only be able to be hand-washed, not machine washable or dryable, but, it'll be ok since it's not really a piece that will be worn next to the skin, and also not worn all the time. I can hardly wait for the cooler weather to be here so I can wear it! :-)
This is the side view of the same piece.
I finished the shawl for the exchange, but I haven't taken any photos of it, and I also haven't washed and dried it so that will have to be done before I take photos. I did my first fringe, and I think it came out ok.
That's about it from me since I have NO energy today.
