I have been busily spinning and weaving in the evenings.  I had decided to weave a scarf a week….I am up to scarf #9. I think that is about on schedule…not that anyone is counting.

Scarf #4 is my favorite so far. It retains  the liveliness of the original fleeces that I washed and prepped.  The lincoln was spun off of mini combs.  The corriedale was spun long draw from batts.

 

 

I am still seeking Log Cabin weave.  I am not very interested, at this time, in precise weave structures.  I just want to follow the weave where my spirit takes me.  But, I have been fascinated with the light and shadow of a good log cabin weave.  So far, I have not succeeded…but I did do this lovely asymetric plaid in scarf #8!

 

 

 

Scarf #6 and #7 are hard to tell apart.  They each have a linen warp and a wild batt single weft.  One is more blue and one is more lavender.  Gideon preferred the purple.
