3 color woven "houndstooth"
Today is a gray and rainy day, and I'm having trouble doing anything productive. I didn't sleep well last night, and today I'm just dragging! I did manage to start another project on the loom, but I'm not making much progress with the weaving.

I warped up another houndstooth scarf so I could start the two colors from opposite sides. After warping cream and black, I realized that I didn't have enough black left for the weft. I had the same yarn in gold, so I started a 3-color scarf. This of course means that it's not a houndstooth, but it's an interesting pattern.

Working the gold and cream from opposite sides is working well. The two sides of the scarf match better and the edges look more balanced. I think I'll like this scarf when it's finally completed. I just need to find the energy to complete it.

Wow you set these up so quickly. You are really good at this. I love the color choices on this one. Do you have book of instructions and where did you get the loom. Was it expensive.
