the royal opera scarf

Lantern Moon came out with scrumptious yarn, and it is truly scrumptious!  I happened to come by some of the aran weight in a royal purple and a lace weight in cherry.  although i usually would not (for whatever reason) put these two colors together, there was a strong response from a couple of friends to try pairing them, so i did.

unfortunately, photos do not do it justice.  it has a wonderful sheen to it and almost glitters in a subtle sort of way. here is an overexposed close up.  again, it doesn’t do it justice!

i think one of my favorite weaving “types” is using thick warp and thin weft.  it shows the warp off wonderfully!  i will explore this structure more, but i have realized that i really like doing the whole spectrum of possibilities! i also fell in love with twisted fringe.  more of that to come too.
