Super Scarves for Super Bowl XLVI

Thanks to Gina'a determination, The Fiber Closet received word that woven scarves are OK for this project. Gina wove a beautiful scarf and sent it to the Super Bowl Host Committee. The Committee accepted the scarf and asked that we spread the word that woven scarves are acceptable following the same yarn guidelines for knit or crochet scarves.

Gina used Cascade 220 yarn--Color 8505 White and Color Heathers 9457 Blue

The Fiber Closet has received two woven scarves:  another one from Gina and one from Cathy.  The Fiber Closet has received several knitted scarves.

Weaving at The Fiber Closet

Our Thursday weaving group has been moving at "warp" speed.  Gina has completed numerous projects. Gina's Projects.  Gina, Cathy and myself have all completed spa cloths on our Cricket Looms.

Last Tuesday, I presented how to direct warp a rigid heddle loom to the Hoosier Heritage Spinners and Weavers Guild.  I warped the loom at the meeting and later that evening I finished weaving the scarf.  I have yet to tie the fringe and full the scarf.

After the meeting, Mary Kay purchased a Cricket Loom.  I can't wait to see what she weaves.  You may know her from Ravelery--Mary Kay.  Check out her beautiful toys she has knit for her grandchild and the many other projects she has knitted.
