boring myself silly

wool silk scarf
First 300 picks.The repeat is 846 and then it mirrors.The weft is a soft silk bourette , the operative word is soft meaning loosely spun.It twists on itself and i didn't want to skein and dye it, already having my share with the wool warp and the hairspray smell, so that's the reason for the natural color. However when finished it will be dyed the colors of the rainbow. And that will be the fun part. One has to endure the worms if one wants to enjoy butterflies paraphrasing St. Exupery.
The line in the middle is not a mistake, although it looks like one, because it weaves correctly in the plain weave part. Mystery.

Here's the tie up for the weaving,
originally cooked by me.:)

  1. I would love to see the cloth after wet finishing, to see if that line disappears when pressed. Sometimes things look funny on the loom, then after finishing you can't find what it was that bothered you.
