Oooooh, this is giving me ideas. I'm generally a worsted-weight-and-thinner kind of girl, I assume you used screws instead of nails for stability and to keep the yarn from sliding off the top, yeah? I'm poor and will probably end up with a 1by instead of a 2by, what if I attached a thin strip of wood along each end of the board, and used the increased depth to anchor longer nails? They'd be taller and thinner, allowing for more of them and making for a denser fabric, and the extra height of the strip would give me more clearance between the scarf and the board, allowing for better shuttle maneuverability...am I making any sense? Argh, why does it have to be two in the morning, I need to acquire some lumber so I can experiment with things, RIGHT NOW.
eta: Got so distracted by my head full of ideas I forgot to say the scarf is absolutely gorgeous and thanks so much for sharing your method! I was obviously very inspired
Read this thread right before my shower and I spent the entire time plotting out colorway combinations and whatnot.
