And so my beautiful loom, Miss Bennet, is naked again. (Don't look! She's shy.) The last of this year's series of Kindergarten Scarves is finished, washed and dried and ready to go.
For this one, I did another plaid in 2/2 twill - this time I didn't mirror the colour sequence, but rather repeated it twice across the width of the scarf. Then I wove the same repeat for the length. Because I had more of the grey and lavender (Montmartre) left over, I doubled the width of those stripes in comparison to the other four, which worked out perfectly to balance the light shades and dark shades. My only regret is the lack of symmetry, i.e. not having one more column up one side to make it five colour blocks wide instead of four. That would satisfy my aesthetic side a bit better.
The funny thing is that of this year's scarves, the ones that were unplanned were the ones I got the best feedback on. Maybe next year I'll just skip the planning and do a series of assorted plaids.
I present to you, the Kindergarten Scarves, 2012 series:
Living life somewhere in the grey area between Liz Lemon and Nancy Botwin. I live with my beloved Heterosexual Life Mate (HLM), no kids, two beautiful feline ladies, and what I can only assume are self-replenishing stacks of fabric and yarn.
