UN-doing

My husband bought me an anniversary gift this year.
Yarn.
I had told him recently
my goal for the year is
NOT spending anything on fabric/yarn this year.
And so far,
I've been true to my word.
But....
He said, that if HE bought it....
That would be O.K.
LOL!
 
So HE bought it.
Really nice yarn.
Fun yarn.
Yarn that I picked out!!!
and....
I didn't like the scarf.
:(
The scarf was just TOO stiff.
I think that's called the drape...???

I did some UN-WEAVING
Let me tell you.....
UNweaving takes a LONG time!!!
 
Thankfully it was Thursday morning
(my sewing group day)
and I had friends to talk to as I worked!!!!

I warped the loom up AGAIN
with something thinner
(cotton crotchet thread)
and I used EVERY other slot in the reed.
(not sure if that's a good idea....
but i did it!)

MUCH better.
 
I don't have much longer to use a WARM scarf
as the weather warms up!!!
Ah well...
There's always next year!
;)

  8. Beth, does your loom come with all these cool ideas or do you come up with them yourself?
