I didn't win the lottery so I'm back at work...
Knit It Together

Well, that didn't work...

I've been meaning to warp the loom for weeks now and last night the opportunity finally presented itself.

 Well, that didn't work...

I had four balls of hempathy in the stash--2 orange and 2 turquoise and wanted to do a houndstooth pattern like this one.

It's an easy design--the warp is 2 orange, 2 turquoise threads along the width and the weft is exactly the same.

I decided to get all crafty and make bigger "teeth" and warped a 4X4 pattern. But once I started weaving I realized that's not going to work.

I'm making gingham.

This was supposed to be a kicky little summer scarf, but I think it's going to be more dishcloths.


Love the colors together!

You can never have too many dishcloths!

But I like it, despite the lack of houndsteeth. Turquoise and orange are fav colours in our house, too.

Maybe you can still make it into a kicky summer scarf with some embroidery on the ends? Dishcloths are fine, but it would be a great scarf!

It's beautiful, regardless!

Begin spatially-challenged myself, I frequently end up with surprise projects. I've learned to enjoy the unexpected. (Not really, but that's what I tell myself.)

Right now it sort of looks like a flag. I love the colours!

Do you know why it didn't make houndstooth? I can't tell from your blog entry, and I don't want to be insulting...but it's the difference between plain weave and twill. Let me know if you have questions.
