Woven Scarf completed

The scarf I started weaving Saturday is finished.  Every picture that I took shows it as green and white.  It is really forest green and a lighter green that is between mint and sage.  The label says "woodland heather."  I tried to do color correction in the photo editor but the results are still not correct.


When I put the scarf around my neck, the fringe hangs to my knees. I can wrap it around my neck twice easily.  Not including the fringe it is six feet long.  I am very happy with the results.  It is soft yet has a nice body to the fabric. I think that it looks very classy when I have it on.  It would look at home with a black or gray or tan classic overcoat (think London Fog.)  But it would also look very sporty with a black or brown bomber jacket.  Color me happy!

And I can't resist posting the sunset from yesterday.  It started as a rainy dreary day..but it surely did end gloriously.


Comments are welcomed. I will reply when possible unless otherwise stated. Foolishly posted "hate speech" comments will be swiftly removed.

That scarf is absolutely gorgeous. You're so making me want to do some weaving. Seems to go faster than knitting or quilting.

Looks like a good scarf for St. Patrick's Day . . . or Christmas!

Beautiful scarf, beautiful sunset.
Great weaving job Gene. I am so impressed by your work.

Barbara said...

Wow, I agree with Marjorie, it does go quicker than knitting. But the caveat is that you need a real loom like you have, Gene. My box loom wit over-ing and under-ing goes about the same as knitting. I still like doing it though. It is really beautiful, Gene! Congratulations! So is the larger loom for sale? ;)
