But I do have a few pretty photos to show you! I took a great weaving class at the Madrona Fiber Festival, and came home with a wee Schacht Cricket loom. It's been a lot of fun practicing my new skills (yes, Dotty, I could have been blogging when I was weaving).
And I figured out how to get pooling sock yarns into weaving, as well! Here's my loom, all warped with a skein of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock.
And here's the finished scarf. The weft yarn was Kraemer Silk & Silver, and yes, you can sort of see some of the sparkly silver peeking through the scarf. A typical sock yarn skein width, pooled, gives you about a 6' by 10" woven scarf.
Here's what I had left over — just a smidge of the skein was left, laid out here beside its sibling.
And a family portrait — with the Kraemer spooning at the back.
