Finished fabric

This is the semi-artistic shot of my finished fabric for curtains. I wet finished it in my bathtub and then put it in the washer on a rinse/spin cycle (front loading washer) to get some of the water out. I used the dryer to get the fabric 3/4's dry, then put it outside on the line.

With the fabric weaving finished, I spun some hand-dyed cotswold wool and cast on for a scarf. This is a simple lace pattern and I liked knitting it, but the resulting fabric didn't work. It had columns of 'slip one,knit two together, pass slipped stitch over' separating the yarn-over holes that were too stiff for me.

So, this scarf is now working on becoming my socks (at least I think they'll be mine!).
