Alpaca, Cashmere, Textured Weaving

I am really enjoying weaving and have just finished this delicious textured scarf. I didn’t realise it was possible to create textures using aheddle loom until a friend on Ravelry pointed me in the direction of this pattern, PDF Link. It took quite a lot of concentration to do and looking closely at the scarf I can see some errors. This one is for me though, deliciously soft after a short tumble dry to fluff it up. Alpaca warp and Cashmere weft, can you just imagine how soft this is?

Hope you are all being creative out there…

    I think it looks great. I've been so tempted to get a small loom, but I am resisting. You are making it tough.

    Breathless sigh. That is just soooo very beautiful. You are one of those disgustingly super-talented people who happens to be a very nice person too.
