Red Scarf made on Rigid HeddleMy first rigid heddle project, created from dollar store yarn; wasn’t going to risk home spun. To get longitudinal stripes, I varied the warp between wide rust chenille and black twisted with rust chenille. I wove the weft with a narrow variegated rust chenille. The weft is all the same yarn.

For a much more detailed run-through of a similar scarf made using a rigid heddle, please view my post Rigid Heddle Irregular Dent Felted Scarf (Lime and Turquoise). Or visit our home page Seabreeze Spinners.Red Scarf Up Close

    I love looking at your weaving projects! Weaving is something I haven’t tried yet, but have been wanting to do. Someday soon, I hope…I just need to make the time.

    I enjoyed your site and I think I spotted Jean’s scarves. Got your newsletter today. (Alpaca Junction) What fun! Those poor babies on the cover are lucky to be in Florida with those hair cuts but we spinners are greatful they gave their all for our obsession.

    Thank you for the feedback. I’m so delighted to begin getting connected with other bloggers.

    The rigid heddle looms like the Ashford’s Knitters Loom or the Schatht Spindle’s Flip the Folding Loom are great for small weaving projects. I don’t have space for a huge floor loom (or so my husband keeps telling me) and I value my homespun too much to waste it on “take up” for a conventional floor loom. Weaving takes a lot less yarn than a simular sized knitted project. Again, I like being able to use my homespun sparingly.

    I loved your site and will be back. Hope you’ll come back too.
