Purple Iris

This is a scarf that I wove on the heddle loom.

For the warp I used Patons Grace yarn in shades of purple, blue and cream - all the colors of iris. For the weft I used Knit Picks Crayon in purple - lest the name Purple Iris.

This project is far from perfect, but its my first project where I didn't make any mistakes warping the loom! I don't think I miswove anything on the weft, but my spacing still needs some work.

I thought it would be fun to add some beads to the fringe. I found some very pretty purple beads wrapped in wire. They're probably just glass, but I thought that they were very fun so I added them to the ends of some of the fringes.

I have a lot of work to do before I can say that I've "mastered" the loom, but this is the first project that has no really obvious mistakes.

I'll be sending this one to my sister.

Looks soft and yummy, but I've no glue what h...loom is. You should show us a photograph of it. Do you enjoy using it more or less than crocheting?

Hope things are going well for you, swing by for a visit.
