Shadow weave scarf the second

Looks good doesn't it. 
Why would anyone weave an entire scarf that they know doesn't feel good. 
Yep, that would be me!
The light thread is supposed to be merino (though I have a big question over that but that's what it was sold to me as) - overtwisted hairy crap.  If half the jinxes I put on the manufacturer come true someone will be feeling very sorry for themselves right now.

So I spent precious hours removing said threads and replacing them with true merino.
Then I had to sit awhile with tea and chocolate cake!
Now that I've got that off my chest I do take some responsibility for making a bad choice.


  1. Don't tell me you removed all the ends of 'overtwisted hairy crap' across a whole scarf - someone should tell you 'it's just yarn' . Hope you've moved on to a more satisfying project by now Helen

  2. That's what makes you such a good weaver Dianne. You just don't send out anything that is second rate. Did you really needle weave the whole thing? Awesome!

    1. No no no, I still have one scratchy scarf - haven't binned it yet. There was warp left on the loom for two more scarves. Its complicated how I did the replacement but involves knots, unwinding warp, more knots, rewinding warp. I would never dream of needle weaving but one could tie a weavers knot and pull new threads through - if one really had nothing else to do!!
