No sooner than I got it, it was warped and I was weaving. In a few days I had my first FO, a scarf. I learned a lot with this scarf - most importantly I don't need to beat the hell out of it as it will be far too tight and stiff.
I had fun with the striping and I like how it looks - it just is too stiff.
So, I took another skein of Cascade 220 I had in deep stash and went to my LYS and picked out 2 skeins of Noro Silk Garden. I used the same color way but ran two shuttles so it would have a sort of striped effect. I didn't beat it as hard and let the colors do their thing. It kind of was like potato chip knitting - I kept weaving to see what the colors would do next.
Here's my setup - amazing what tools you use when you need them - Rolling Rock kept the light table from moving under the tension of the warping.
Here it is finished - it is a long scarf and I gave it a shorter fringe than my first one. I think it looks fantastic!
