Moving Right Along

One of the great attributes of weaving is that it is accomplished quickly. Yesterday, I resleyed the scarf warpp to 30 ends per inch and lo! it's warp-faced!

Furthermore, it's done!

A little narrow, and the yellow isn't a color I wear often, but done. Woven. Finished. Completed. Done.

As well, the second mitten was finished yesterday. I even found the yarn label, so I can tell you these are made of Ironstone New Wool. The basketweave cuff is lovely, but a bear to knit at this gauge - quite stiff. This cuff won't be letting any cold breezes near my wrists.

So now I have a hat and matching mittens. I feel almost pulled together.

Woohoo for done!
Always a good feeling.
And you'll have lots of time to enjoy them, since there is SO much winter yet to go...
*sigh*

Nothing like a couple quick FOs for a pick-me-up, eh? They look great.

The woven scarf is lovely!

And the hat & matching mittens look warm and cozy! Nice work!

Nice FO's! For the weaving ignorant such as myself, what does warp-faced mean? Same as warp dominant? Meaning mostly warp is showing and only the weft peeking through? Curious minds want to know :-)

Nice! Had to pace on the basketweave to preserve the hands, but the pattern was worth the effort.

The scarf came out well.

The scarf is gorgeous! I love the firey look of it!

I love the colors on that scarf! It reminds me of a sunrise, which is great when it's gray and icky out.

What did you use for weft?
