Notes

9 Aug 2012: Warping is now easier for me and don’t need to look on the loom manual for instructions. This will be plain weave. 122 ends. Lena (orange) for the warp. Jayne (brown/pink) for the weft.

Need to check the length again as I didn’t measure. My method is just placing the peg and the loom 4.5 squares of my floor tiles apart since that gives me the length that I like. How very scientific huh?

I have leftover of the Lena and plan to insert a stripe of it somewhere along the either ends of the scarf.

I’ve been hemming the beginning before going too far because I am not sure how to hem it once it’s off the loom. Doing the overhand knot for the fringe hides them quite well.

17 Aug 2012: Done. The dye from the warp has rubbed off on the front bar :(
