Mistake Made

My second project on the rigid heddle, I pulled out some Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift from the stash and thought I would try my hand at a simple houndstooth / pinwheel houndstooth in two shades of purple.

Except I mistakenly warped alternating 4 of each color instead of 2 of each color. So I wove a check/plaid instead.

I wound a 2.5yd warp. Only 94 ends, 10 dent heddle.

I washed and dried it and it felted just slightly. It’s actually very soft and lightweight. I hemstitched both ends and went with a very short fringe. It would be a good scarf for a peacoat.
