This is a scarf. Well, not quite yet. Right now it is just a group of skeins of some of my recent handspun yarn. But it’s going to be a scarf. The white tags on each skein have yardage information.
So, what has happened to the silk crackle?
Well, I’ve dyed the second skein, which turned out nicely. And I’m ready to dye the third skein of warp yarn.
But I really long to weave.
Actually weaving the silk crackle is going to be awhile because of all the preparation steps that need to happen.
So, while I am doing that, I am going to make a dent in some of my handspun and weave a scarf for a Christmas present.
The red and green are really a bit too………too “Christmasy” for my taste. But the green is going to appear only as two very narrow stripes, one on each side of the scarf.
There are 16 wraps per inch. Looking at comparable yarns in the Halcyon yarn catalog, I find the a sett between 10 and 12 epi would be appropriate for twill. I am skeptical, however. I think I need to check with Osterkamp.
