Rich Colors

A friend contacted me to make something for a present. I got excited.  I ordered the supplies and could hardly wait for them to arrive.
Then they arrived and I got started on the weaving.
I had a difficult time putting this down.  The colors are richer in person than they appear on the screen.
Last night, I got it off the loom.  It still needs to have the fringe twisted.  Then I will wet finish it.
Here are the photos I took this morning under overcast skies.





two photos combined to save space!
 This scarf is roughly six feet long as requested and made of mostly wool. There are some cotton fabric bits added in. There is also a bit of acrylic and a wool/acrylic blend yarn in there since I needed the extra colors.

This is really a great! scarf. I like 6' because you can wrap it in many ways. I put the second photo through my micro soft picture it and it made the colors jump out..very beautiful! When I look at the colors it reminds me of the words in America the Beautiful....For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
