Spell check does not like 'diddley' but I don't care! I have finished my first woven scarf!!!!! You know what? It was virtually pain-free.
I have been sucked into the world of weaving. If I had room for it, I'd get a floor loom in a heartbeat! But alas, until that roommate of mine finds a) a girlfriend, b) an apartment, I'm afraid I will have to 'make do' with my rigid heddle loom.
Oh, don't feel too sorry for me. I have a feeling that Emilia and I will be good friends. Here are the pics I took of me finishing the ends. The first one has the 'waste' yarn and the scarf before knotting the fringe:
The second photo is after removing the waste weft and tying the fringe:
I've learned a lot from my first project but all in all, I love the scarf. I've washed it in the usual Head 'n Shoulders Shampoo/Conditioner and now it's drying. Looking mighty good, if I do say so myself.
Today after work I drove out to a quilting friend's house to relieve her of some unwanted yarn. The best thing in the whole lot was some weaving yarn -- woohoo! There was some acrylic yarn, which I dropped off at Judith's house since she's our knitting guild's charity project coordinator.
A man came by the house to give me a price for grinding down the stump in my backyard. He wants $175 so I think I'll keep looking. I also need some wacky wasp nest taken down from the tree in my front yard. There's always something to do around here. Wish I could just weave all day.................
