The 50 ends of yellow shetland warp has been on the Harrisville Rescue for a couple of months, since before my latest back issues which, by the way, are much relieved by the epidural cortisone injection. (Now if they could only inject the rest of me with cortisone!)
I cut off the ridiculous sample and resleyed to make something with skipped dents: 10 epi for 8 ends and skip 5 dents, repeat. Then added little extra yarn in some of the heddles and dents for a sprinkling of color weighting it off the back of the loom like a supplementary warp. Use a lease stick for a spacer because it was just lying there on the floor doing nothing.
Weave until the warp runs out and tie the ends in groups. Just off the loom it measured 6″ x 54″.
Wet finish by tossing into the washer with some warm water, a handy nightgown and a squirt of Ivory Liquid. Two minutes of agitation and I got fuzzy fulling so I took it out and hung it up to dry.
So now we have a new cheery scarf in a buttery (thanks Maureen) yellow with a little blue accent stripe to add to the gift box. After wet finishing it measures 5″x49″.
