Kerry’s Current UFO on World UFO Day
I have a beaut of a UFO on my loom. First, the project backstory: I’m a new weaver. My rigid-heddle loom was a birthday gift from my family. They bestowed it this past February because I got so excited working on Liz Gipson’s book, Handwoven Home. The moment I finished putting the loom together, I warped it with the nearest skein of yarn within reach, Spun Right Round’s SW Sock 80/20 in the Reaper’s Rags colorway. My last FO, the Find Your Fade shawl by Andrea Mowry, required 7 skeins in different colors, and I had about ¾ of a skein left over of the last color used.
Along with that skein of Reaper’s Rags, I have 6 other partial skeins from that shawl to use up as well. So I decided that a simple weave scarf, shifting weft colors through those 6 skeins, would be a great first project. I’ve woven my way through 2 of those 6 colors so far and I’m in love. I enjoy weaving a few inches on rainy days when the family piles on the couch watching movies. With the weather we’ve been having this summer, I think I’ll quickly turn this weaving UFO into an FO in no time!
