Zephyr scarf

When I first got the book Weaving Made Easy I fell in love with the "Tweedy Scarf" made from Jaggerspun Zephyr. I even scrapped up the funds to splurge and buy the yarns for it. Grin then I came to my senses and realized I was not ready to weave that scarf just yet. That yarn has languished for months as I worked on my skills so I could do it justice.

Today I got up the courage to start that lovely scarf. The project calls for 3 different colors to produce a tweedy effect. I wanted a softer more soothing effect so got three colors closer in color/value. I think the colors look good together and I think the warp using the 3 strands is very close to the effect I wanted. Lets hope its stays that soft ocean like color when woven.
