New Saori woven scarves

Rains came this week and I wound a new warp for two scarves. one for a new Saori santa cruz studio student, susan, and one for me. It was perfect weaving by the wood stove .
 This scarf is the mobius scarf/cowl scarf that you use the beginning warp{ untied} as the weft yarns at the end of the scarf . When you have woven the scarf, untie it and and weave each warp as weft at the end to give a pointed fringed finish.

lovely colors

Susan came wearing her exquisitely hand spun hand knitted lace shawl in rose hues. and a lovely hand
 woven stole she had woven on her ridged heddle loom. She is very talented and her mobius cowl scarf turned out fantastically rich. I love the yarn choices she chose. We had a wonderful time discussing looms and fibers, and history as we wove.
she finished her cowl and is going to twist the fringes at home and send me a photo of the finished weaving. we found out we have the same lumix camera too.
and here is susan's lovely finished mobius cowl
