I finished the Ashford Loomies Challenge scarf a few nights ago, but it’s been overcast and gloomy here and I didn’t fancy trying to photograph a dark object under such lighting conditions.
It’s a bit brighter this morning, so I took it out onto the deck:
I beaded the fringe and, after a wash and drip dry, it’s lovely and drapey. I’m calling it the Charcoal Scarf.
It’s not the only woven finished object completed this week. This is the Woven Roving Rug:
I crocheted down the sides of both pieces of fabric, joined them together, then used a crochet hook to attach trimmings of fringe to the crocheted edge so the fringe extends all along opposite sides. The whole thing needed a good, strong blocking to even it out.
It’s thick and warm and comfy. I’m using it as a lap rug in the work room. We’ve had some unseasonably cool, rainy weather here. I wore a wool knitted jacket yesterday. In November. Not that I’m complaining. Summer is my least favourite time of year.
