New Patterns!

 I managed to get a big lot of aran wool recently at the Crafting Live event at Sandown Park with Create & Craft. With this, I have decided that big fluffy scarves are the way to go! This pattern took a while to get the hang of, but I think it looks pretty good. Just a label and a was and we're ready to go!


Weaving takes time, a heck of a lot of time, but it really is dependant on your wool. If you're using a 2 or 3 ply for your weft, its going to take ages. But aran, aran is wonderful. Your wool is a good few millimetres wide and that means it fills up your shed pretty quickly, even if you beat it quite hard for a solid scarf. Some scarves can take me a good 5 hours of weaving to finish, whereas this group probably took me an hour and a half each! It fills up like magic!


My favourites are definitely the blues. It's a lovely wool bought from Black Sheep Wool, which has three different colours in the yarn. One is a dark blue, one a mid blue and one a slightly teal-ish colour. When these are put together and used as a weft, it almost looks iridescent! I'm so pleased with it!
