Hi all!
It takes some month, since my first attempt to handweaving, to hold the technique at that reasonable point when you can predict what you are doing, and what you get then.
it's not totally experimenting and messing around with the fibers, but is make a will, and let the technique help you to reach that result.
Now after some scarvs handwoven, I'm proposing you the last two, warped by me and woven bay me\my girlfriend
It took nearly 7 hour per scarf so, it's a looooooong work, but it's pure magic seeing the textile that compose in front of your eyes, shot by shot, weft by weft.

enjoy the pictures!

Enjoy!

D'ario, they are beautiful! I love the colors and texture of the first one, and the pattern and colors of the second one. Your scarf edges are very neatly done. Fantastic work!

Are you using a rigid heddle loom, or something with more than two harnesses? I'm still learning how to weave. Smiley

Thanks a lot for the compliments,
I'm using a four harnesses table loom by MIRA, a manufacturer (I presume) from Holland.

I'm a fanatic of the Handweaving.net site, where I catch some drafts and I use for the warping. now I'm able to warp yarns for 2 scarves, so it takes the half of the time. it's a long work, but absolutely worthy!

thanks again, keep weaving!
