I’ve spent hours playing games like this, but finally came to a decision today. Now awaiting a large box of yarn….

But more scarves have appeared on the loom too. I’m steadily working my way through those little bits of leftover merino/silk, but I don’t believe I will ever quite exhaust the supply. On Friday I wove this one…

Couldn’t resist that low angle, which makes it pop into 3-D! Once I have finished it, I think there may be one more scarf in this warp.

    The cost of shade cards puts some people off – i have seen weavers taking phone pictures at stands to avoid paying. Your post confirms the attraction of having the real thing, and playing creatively!

      They are a frightening expense, but there’s no need to buy them very often – and I never make good decisions based on just photos! Maybe you could all nudge the Guild into buying them as a collective investment??
