My own weft-float pattern, in purple!

So I got pretty excited about this technique and right after I did the green scarf, I put another one on the loom… and then… well… I got distracted. You know, it happens.

That’s meant the poor project has been on the loom for weeks and weeks and I’ve only been picking at it. Right now it’s “almost done”…except it’s been like that for about two weeks. Yep.

To insult the project further I took a totally dodgy pic of it:

Not sure I could have taken a less complimentary pic if I’d tried to! Still, you get the idea: There are ziggy-zaggy boarders with occasional small diamonds.

In truth, I’m very excited to see what it’ll look like off the loom! The yarn is a bamboo mix so it’s silky and soft, which is nice in itself. Plus it’s purple and I personally think that makes most things beautiful (except bruises).

I promise a better pic once the scarf comes off the loom.
