Belladune,

Thanks for the tutorial! I'm very inspired and was wondering if you have any notes about the yardage needed to complete the scarf? How much yarn did it require?

You're welcome!  As to the yardage, I've looked around for the stats on the yarn I used, and I can't find it.  But Knowing that I filled a bobbin when spinning it, and that I can fit about 175-200 yards of yarn that weight on one bobbin, I'm going to guesstimate somewhere between 160-180 yards (as I have some left over)

Wow, thank you so much for the tutorial!  I've been wanting to try out weaving, but the costs for a loom are a bit high.

Might try this out this weekend. tehe...

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 Cheesy Read this thread right before my shower and I spent the entire time plotting out colorway combinations and whatnot.

Aliastriona_angerboda,  All of you 2 am ramble makes perfect sense!  I used screws for 2 reasons  1) They were available (my husband has a gaint pluming shop, so there are more screws around then nails) and 2) I'm a heck of a lot better with a cordless drill then with a hammer!  Nails would work eaqually as well.
So happy to inspire, and thank you for the compliment!

Anyone else have a super C-ster crush on Belladune? Or am I the only one? I know I can't be the only one. She's one of my C-ster heroes. Hm, I should make her a cape sometime.

But yes, the scarf is lovely and I always forget how easy it would be to make my own loom. Bah! I've been meaning to get into weaving but it doesn't look like this is the year to do it for me. And always with the hand-spun! Pieces that are both hand-spun and hand-woven are the best. And pieces that use hand-spun loosely totally show off the awesomeness of it. Well done, my friend. *clap clap clap*

Sweet! Thanks again for the tute.

Now, the last time I did some weaving was in kindergarten, and it looked a bit different from yours. You could not see the Warps at all anymore.
So what do you do different?
Is it just that you use the same yarn (or the same thickness of yarn) for Warps and Whefts? Do you just not comb it down to press the Whefts together and cover up the Warps? Or are the Warps on your frame closer together than on the kindergarten wooden frames?

Your scarf looks so nice and light and fluffy!

This looks like so much fun!  My one (probably dumb) question is:  when you start to weave do you anchor the end of your shuttle yarn, or just leave it loose and tie it into the fringe at the end?
  This may have to be a post Christmas project at this point - but looking forward to giving it a shot!  Smiley  Thank you!

I leave it loose and either weave it in or let it be part of the fringe.  I don't secure it at all before weaving.
