it’s always exciting to cut off new weaving

to even the fringes I pin both ends together, tape them to a straight edge and cut

the ribbon-like silk yarn is much softer after washing but it still feels a little like paper

I hemstitch the ends while under tension on the loom and then twist the fringes

I have plans for the last bit of warp, the weft is a dark blue/black, handspun silk which shows the twill pattern and is more lively than black

oh, la la – WordPress has made some changes . I wish they would give me a choice, it’s just plain time- consuming and frustrating. It will probably take a few posts to get what I want – if ever!

    lovely scarves! very neat way to make them even. i’ve always weighted down the woven end with a couple of books, made sure it was even, and hung the fringe off the side of a desk and then trimmed. your way looks more exact!

    Great idea with the tape…I’m always fiddling with that part. The scarves turned out very nice, and the black on black is very classy.

    that always seems to be the trouble for us who like to make things. the external templates and rules and sudden changes are never quite the right fit! i like the trimming trick; thanks for sharing!

      Aimee – I was writing an email to you when this came in and somehow I lost it – back to the keyboard!
