Upon returning from a short trip up to Portland, OR, yesterday, I finished the shawl I had been weaving. I actually finished it a week ago, but had to twist the fringe (about 32 twisted fringes on each end). This is woven of 100% silk and I used a fancy point twill pattern. I used three different colored silk yarns in the warp and a dark plum weft.
The finished dimensions are 7 1/2 " wide and 70" in length. It was really great to get my loom out again. I had not woven anything for at least a couple of years and had forgotten how much I enjoyed weaving. I warped my loom for two shawls so I'm going to get back to the second one. Because of the colors I'm using in the weft, the second shawl should look quite a bit different.
