Have I mentioned how much I love weaving on a rigid heddle with sock yarn? A ton. Right after I bought my first floor loom I sold my Ashford Knitter's loom (AKL). I had actually thought that once I start weaving on a "big girl" loom, aka a floor loom, that I would never want to revisit my slooooow weaving RH. A month or two without that little AKL and I quickly realized I had made a big mistake! I love making scarves out of wacky variegated knitting yarn.
This little beauty was dyed by a Ravelry buddy, Azlynn of Dyelectable Yarns, and is an 80/10/10 MCN blend. The colorway name is roadkill. The image of roadkill isn't all that beautiful, but this skein sure is.
I decided to pair it with some Sanguine Gryphon Skinny Bugga (also 80/10/10 MCN) in Grey Scalloped Bar Butterfly.
The result is stunning although I am only 1/4 of the way into it.
My cats loved it too. I left to go to the store, and when I returned home the caked skein that was waiting to become the weft looked like this.....
I almost cried. I did yell. I was tempted to throw it away. But with some encouragement I sat down and untangled it myself. Only after I contacted some of the fabulous women in the Knot a Problem group on Rav. These women love to untangle yarn, and will do it for others. More power to them. I'd rather knot do it ever again ;)
