It's a long story.

Long ago I bought yarn with the idea of semi-recreating an awesome scarf I had once but gave up because I'd grown allergic to it  Cry This scarf is 100% me-safe!



After abandoning the notion of knitting or crocheting (which I admire greatly but actually doing either frustrates the heck out of me), I dug out an embroidery scroll frame, cut oodles of 3-yard-long black strands for the warp and started weaving.



The scroll frame had 2 split dowels that I slid the warp strands through but no pegs to keep the strands spaced. It was also a 6" frame. I had to keep pulling the finished part up through one dowel and manually untangling and spacing the next portion of warp before passing the weft through.

However, 4 days later = done! And I mean just about 4 entire days. I started on Boxing Day and didn't finish until sometime in the afternoon on Dec. 29. I just plopped in front of the TV and wove!



It's about 7 feet long with 10" fringe on either side. The whole thing is secured by machine sewing in black thread all around the edges.



It's warm and when I went back to work with it I got compliments! Not bad for a vacation project! I think I am quite happy with my new scarf.  Smiley

I'm impressed with your perseverance. Weaving intrigues me.
