Today I am using a smaller loom. It is a Schacht Cricket 15" rigid heddle loom. I decided a smaller loom was far more practical for smaller projects. It is also easier to travel with. Last night I put the warp on the loom. I was planning to do a lovely pattern called (you are going to love this) Log Cabin. What I didn't do was read the directions again. Mr. "I'm sure I remember" put the entire warp on the loom the way he thought it should go. Sigh! Clearly I have read too many weaving patterns and the wrong one stuck.
So instead of a log cabin pattern, I have a plaid that looks like patchwork.
It has light, medium and dark squares. The medium squares are a combination fo the light and dark threads. The human eye conveniently mixes the colors for a nice medium shade. The photo doesn't quite match the colors (at least on my monitor it doesn't.) The light is a soft pale green and the dark is a forest green. I warped it with alternating sets of 4 dark then 4 light. I am weaving the weft (threads from side to side) with the same 4 dark/4 light pattern. This creates the plaid/patchwork. The yarn for this is a very soft acrylic. I think this scarf will be nice for a man or a woman.
Have you ever owned a handwoven scarf? What would you consider a reasonable price for one if I put it on Etsy?
