Weekend Scarf Weaving:November 16-17, 2019

This past Friday, I spent all day on the road (7:45 am-8:15pm) participating in the Deep South Yarn Hop. My yarn shop co-worker and I visited all three Nashville area shops and then barely made it south to the Gadsden shop before it closed at 6pm. When I got home after 8pm (with my hands filled with new yarn and fiber), I was ready to go to bed. Saturday, I taught two classes at the yarn shop (an intermediate weaving class and a Yarn 101 class), which meant I didn’t get home until after 6pm when it was all said and done.

Some friends were coming over at 6:30, so I had just enough time to warp my loom before they pulled into the driveway. I ended up in bed before 10pm, so the loom would have to wait until the next morning.

Sunday, I wove off and on all day long and ended up weaving two finished scarves. The first was woven from Berroco Sesame yarn (7430 “pickled ginger” colorway), and the second was from Noro Tennen (“Alpine” colorway #25). I’ve never woven the warp and weft with only Noro before (it’s single ply and notorious for breaking), but I was successful in this attempt and I’m pleased with the results.

Fiber Content: Berroco Sesame (43% Wool/ 39% Acrylic/ 9% Cotton/ 9% Nylon); Noro Tennen (50% Wool/25% Silk/25% Alpaca)
