Snow Day Recap -A finish

While I didn't spend my day in complete productivity, I did manage to start and complete a project.  I spent a lot of time on the computer monitoring weather just like I would have done had we gone to work.  I talked to my boss for about 30 minutes also.

But the main thing I did was create this:
 Yes another scarf.  I hope that it suits the one who asked me to make it.  It certainly suits me.
In fact I look downright dashing in it and my newsboy cap.  Ha ha....who am I kidding. The cap is there to hide my hair which I didn't even comb today.   But the scarf is amazingly rich in color.  But I know I won't get to keep it regardless.  I had another friend see a peek of it so she is second on the list for it.  The reason I am uncertain about the one who commissioned it, is that she doesn't want stripes - but she does want multiple colors.  Since weaving is inherently straight lines, that makes stripes of some manner difficult to avoid.  However, I don't think this really comes off as stripes when it is worn.
I never got around to turning on the sewing machine.  Truthfully, I have at least three more scarf orders and want to fill them as soon as I can.
Weaving these scarves has really helped me to see that most colors will work together.  The big question is "What goes on the loom next?"


Comments are welcomed. I will reply when possible unless otherwise stated.

Such rich color in that scarf. I am sure there will be a long line for it.

Lovely! I did some weaving yesterday too. Got lost in the meditative frame loom over and under-ing by hand, but didn't complete my project. Need a heddle loom to be more quickly productive! Not yet though. I'm enjoying the process.

Gene, you look dashing in that cap and scarf. BTW, the scarf looks so warm and cozy, perfect for a freezing day like today here in central Texas 31 degree with a wind chill factor of 25....can you say..."burrrrrrrrr"
