Aims – about 2 hours to warp and 6 hours to weave, depending on the warp length and complexity – not bad!
I took this off the loom a few weeks ago, but it was uncertain whether I would get nice FO shots of it because, alas, I left the bedroom door open and my kitties got on it and clawed the heck out of it.
However, we managed to wrangle most of the threads back into place. This was my stash busting scarf, using less than 50g of each colour.
Incidentally, this is the best, fastest and cheapest was to wind up a bobbin:
I am using a variation of Leno Lace to vary up my panels a bit. It might just be the kitty damage, but I felt it looked much nicer under tension on the loom than it looked blocked, which is something you don’t hear too often!
However, the size is generous, and the yarns are all either silk, merino, or both so it’s delicious to wear!
It looks amazing! You’d never know that it had a run in with the kitties. Nothing beats a stash buster!
Beautiful! What size reed did you use for that one?
I’m learning that cats and handwoven don’t go together well! Good save, though–it’s lovely!
That’s a very pretty pattern line?, row? whatever :P And I love that method of winding your yarn, some people I know use an electric whisk, with a similar effect :)

Just seeing the photo…loving the colors. Beautiful work.
I’ve never done anything like this Shireen – never had a loom – but did see one the other day in the antique market here.
Now that I’ve sold all my coned yarn – duh! (some woman bought it all for $500 which was an incredible steal!) I’m wondering how long it takes for you to make a scarf?
BTW – I should have known you were a cat person!! Too much alike!! And the first pic is just soooo cute!
