First “wavy scarf”

As promised, I have taken some pics of the first wavy shuttle experiment scarf… You can see I haven’t pressed it – sorry for the creases – but I think you can still see most of what’s going on from a texture point of view!

Looking through the web gives you a sense of the dense patches and curves created by this way of using the wavy shuttle…

So, here I was taking the curves and slowly shifting them to the left with each pic of weft. Then when I’d moved the centre bump to the edge, I moved slowly back to the right. This created these lovely almost leaf shaped dense areas in an otherwise fairly even weave. I love this!

Because of my yarn choice the colour fleck and variegation hides the waviness a bit…

Another yarn would probably have shown the waves better, but I think you can still see that its curving and zig-zagging rather than the usual regular web of plain weave.

Also, I love this yarn. Such a satisfying colour mix.
