I'm over it now and decided that giving up is just not my way. I feel this design is a challenge - and I am going to meet it.
After all when down the only other direction is up :-)
This is the picture which initially inspired me and I have now started weaving again. I should have some progress photos by next time!
I'm currently spinning the yarn for the lighter back ground - the kind of white "over dress" on the left.
Below is a picture of the 3 scarfes together
to show the differences better,
left, the scarfe with brushed wool yarn and hand spun silk,
Middle - with recycled hand spun Sari Silk
right - with bulky synthetic wool.
at my Etsy shop :
They are all nice warm and just the thing for the coming winter :-)
Am now setting up the little loom with a new warp for more Sarisilk table runners and place mats.
With good wishes for all your projects!
until next time, :-)
