Charlemont lace scarf. First year with Schacht Flip rigid heddle loom 2/9

Moving on with Rigid heddle loom.
It was time to try something more complicated than just plain weave.
After I received a parcel from WEBS with Charlemont yarns and downloaded Charlemont lace scarf draft from their site, I hurried up to warp the loom with Mulberry colour. Purple passion - for the weft.

The draft required usage of a pick-up stick for weft floats.
Pick-up stick can be seen in the shed (it is actually another shuttle).

The best feeling - you are doing something you could not do the day before, and it turns out OK; not perfect but definitely beautiful.

And we are ready for a winter stroll dressed in a very soft and cozy scarf.

Finished January 2012
