After I relinquished the Cricket looms borrowed from class, I turned to the 25" table loom and wondered what was next.
I knew I could warp it for another plain weave scarf or possibly a shawl, but I was itching to see how difficult it would be to dress it using four of the eight shafts. So, I dove into the stash and came up with these fingering lovelies:
(Pagewood Farm Chugiak Hand Dyed Sock Yarn in Army Girl and George's Hat.)
In any event, in several small bursts of weaving, I ended up a piece of fabric 11-inches wide and 33-inches long, just right for cowl!
Once I had it off the loom, I used a sewing machine with a very wide zig-zag stitch to secure each of the ends before I did a closed seam to make it round. In all, the finishing took about ten minutes, tops, and I had a finished hand-woven cowl!
While it has not been soaked or blocked yet, the fabric has a lovely silky feel. This one is going into the gift pile for Christmas!
I could not be more pleased!
