Floats and Stripes

scarf warp

I’m direct warping my Cricket rigid heddle loom for a new scarf class at Silk Road Textiles with shimmery, summery yarns of Bee Sweet Bamboo (the pink) and a cotton/viscose blend called Tandem by Tahki Yarns (the variegated). I can’t wait to see how it turns out!

The warp is a little tricky to make since we are doubling some ends and have some odd numbers.  We’ll also I be weaving it up with the Tandem as weft and using a pick up stick for some warp floats along the way to accent the pink bamboo.   Look for it in May or early June!  I’ll let you know when the date is finalized.
