tartanic scarf
Pattern:  Made it up

  Plymouth Yarns Baby Alpaca Lace, DROPS Alpaca
Method:  Weaving
Completed:  April 18, 2014.

Woven in plainweave on my 15" rigid heddle, 12 dent heddle.   Finished measurements: 10" x 70" (exclusive of fringe).  Both yarns are alpaca -- long staple.  The colour patterning a tartan.  I wanted this to complement the scarf I knit for him a while back.  I didn't have quite enough of the original yarns, so I added in the blue  (Plymouth Yarns) as a base.  It is much finer than the DROPS, so I doubled it up in the warp and the weft.

Overall, it turned out pretty well.  It was a little stiff when first off the loom, but after washing and pressing, it has a very nice hand.  I think the weft packed in a little more than expected, so it's not exactly balanced weave.
