Notes

I used 2 different skeins of Hobart bought at 2 different times and they look completely different. If this sounds like a criticism, it is certainly not. I think the beauty of handdyed yarn is that there are so many variations within a colorway.


I normally warp with only a general idea of how much yarn I’ll need. So far it has worked well. This time I decided to be more scientific but somehow ended up with very little weft yarn and a giant warp.

I was planning on doing a bit of random striping with Nuna but not quite this much. At least I have plenty of fabric now. :-)
