Notes

10-dent heddle.

Pooled the Lorna’s Laces in the warp. Based off of wenat’s rainbow pooling scarf using the same yarn in the warp.

I’m not super happy with it. I couldn’t get the colors to line up perfectly and I think that makes it less attractive. I also wove this a little too loosely so it’s very warp faced and I don’t know if I like the way that looks.

UPDATE: I’ve accepted the way the colors line up in the warp thanks to everyone’s very nice comments. Also, mamapantsx3 loves it and that’s what matters most :-).

The third picture is of the rainbow scarf that I made tiamatmatgreen using Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock with Valley Yarns Huntington. I lined her scarf up with purple in the middle so that it goes ROYGBIV from either side to the middle.
