This is 2/8 cotton in hunter green. I thought that it would be great to use in an overtly masculine scarf using a pattern in A Weaver’s Book of Eight Shaft Patterns edited by Carol Strickler that I think looks like bugs. What can be more masculine than a bug?!
I didn’t like weaving the scarf, I had set it up wrong, and the pattern wasn’t working so I cut it off. Usually I would have unwoven the scarf to save the warp and then reworked the entire scarf but I just didn’t want to do all the work for some warp that I didn’t really like.
After cutting it off, the sample relaxed and I could see the bugs! I'm glad that the scarf is off, I just didn’t like weaving it at all! My loom was only empty for an hour before I had another warp on it, this time another table runner warp.
Some of the cotton scarves are in our Esty shop - Woven Beauty. There is three blue scarves and one pink scarf. The purple scarves have not made up yet but soon!
