This is the product of participating in the “Stash Busting Scarf Weave Along 2021” online class led by Tien Chiu and Janet Dawson, in early 2021.

The weaving experience: I did some sampling on my table loom, which helped me figure out what I wanted to do by way of sett and weft choices. It meant I had much more confidence when I got the actual warp onto the floor loom to do the weaving.

The learnings:

Sampling, including wet-finishing of the samples, is really valuable!
