The problem with a loom is that you make a rectangle of fabric, then you have to make it into something. Sewing is not my favourite activity so I end up weaving lots of scarves and wraps.
Last week I made Eno’s scarf, the yarns were chosen by him to make a bright orange scarf that reminded him of a shirt he had 20 years ago that was orange but looked yellow on certain angles. For this one I used some handdyed aran weight wool from Ewe Give me the Knits (warp) and Anny Blatt fine kid (weft).
Scarves are really quick to make compared to knitting them so it isn’t so bad making them to give away.
When Eno went back to the shop that we bought one of his yarns from the day after we bought it, he took the finished scarf to show them. The girl serving was shocked, one of the other customers said she was going to have to learn to weave!
