Fresh on the loom now is Vert est jeune (Green is young) – a play of some sorts on the words “est” and “jeune”; mispronounce both and you get “et” (and) and “jaune” (yellow)… Okay, so it’s a pretty lame attempt at being funny/smart. Never mind that.

This time, I’m working with a slight striping pattern for the warp and will be planning on incorporating it into the weft as well. The fibres in use are not wool but acrylic and cotton, which gives the scarf a softer feel and slight sheen to its surface.

I’m hoping it’ll turn out just the way I imagine it to be. πŸ™‚

In the mean time, it’s back to more weaving and figuring out some mortgage quotes online (it’s an assignment).

  1. Michelle: Yup, the loom size makes it only suitable to churn out things like wraps or scarves. This is probably going to be a scarf but with some help (pins, etc), you can make it into a thin shawl. πŸ™‚
