Weaving is Good.........................

There is a rhythm to weaving..........the throw of the shuttle--back and forth--back and forth.  The traveling of the feet across the treadles.  It's a peaceful feeling of being--swish, swish; tromp, tromp..........and so it goes.  
 
 
 
 
How about this look?  Just winding two different multi-colored silk threads together can give interesting and varied looks to the handspun weaving.
 

The first scarf has been woven and we move on to this scarf--woven with different colors and different look.

Here is the first scarf--8H turned twill pattern

I love the look of this handspun

Here are the two scarves side by side

Plain woven.  I like that you can see the twist in the warp yarn--super!  A bonus!  all that needs to be done now--tie fringe and wash and block--ready to wear!
time to warp the loom again...........................
