I have promised a friend last December to make her a scarf and she is still waiting!
She chose 5 colours from the Venne cotton yarns herself. I ordered the yarns and they have been sitting in a basket waiting patiently to be warped for some time now. I was not sure if I was to make a double weave scarf or not. But I have finely decided to make a kind of pleated scarf as it is a fine yarn and I do not want to spend a long time weaving this scarf as she has been waiting so long already!
So here is my plan.
I found the idea for the scarf in this book and made my own interpretation as I'm using the same thickness yarn and not a thick&thin yarn. For the weft I chose a woollen yarn in one of the warp colours. (in about the same thickness as the warp yarn)
The warp is now made and ready to be put on the loom. A nice weekend job to get the loom ready for weaving. Although the weather keeps being nice and sunny in our part of Holland so I have been out in the garden during the daytime today and hopefully again tomorrow and the loom might have to wait until evening time :-)
