Two more scarves for the kids:
I was looking at an example of the clasped weft technique in one of my old weaving magazines, a while ago, and had an epiphany, that I could use it to make a cool zig-zag scarf. It didn't take long to get from there to the idea of a Kermit the Frog scarf, emulating the little green pointy collar he has around his neck. The technique worked perfectly and was so easy! Maybe I'll use it again sometime to do something more harlequin-y.
Having done a Kermie scarf, I thought the pink and purple one I followed up with might suit Miss Piggy, since it made me think of her purple opera gloves. I chose a bunch of colours for evenly spaced stripes in the warp and then did a two-colour stripe for the weft. It's nicer than this, in person, I just couldn't get the colours right in the photo.
