Cool thing number one: I got the August scarf set up before July was halfway done. Go me!
This is the silk/merino sock yarn I got in a club I was probably ill-advised to join (probably = definitely, since it's physically impossible to reduce yarn supplies by increasing same.) The yardage wasn't going to be enough to do a self-facing scarf to the full width of the loom and my stash is completely free of anything complementary, so I decided to do a slimmer one and hope for a lot of length.
Cool thing number two:
Variegated yarn woven against variegated yarn comes out looking kind of like a tweedy plaid.
... especially from a distance.
Cool thing number three:
I am totally getting a straight edge (on one side) this time. Finally! I might actually be getting the hang of this whole weaving thing. Maybe I should have challenged myself to two scarves a month, just to up the repetition factor. I bet I could have pulled off straight edges on both sides.
And... a bonus cool thing:
I am so going to make ultra-skinny scarves a Thing by wearing this when it's done.
(we live in hope. can you really get away with a less-than-six-inch-wide scarf?)
