Triangle loom triumph 
2nd-Dec-2014 09:15 pm
I finished weaving the latest triangle shawl tonight. The ends are in and it is cast off and headed for washing. It should be dry in time for Saturday's craft fair.

The yarn is a *heavy three-ply heathered pink/grey mohair that has a lot of shine to it. It also has a lot of halo already, so washing should prove interesting. Even with the open work of the loom, it will drape quite definitively. It has no loft whatsoever, and almost no elasticity. It's also unfortunately likely to shed like a scared cat.

*This yarn would only be good for a sweater substituting for concrete shoes. Straight off of the loom, the shawl weighs nearly a pound. A sweater with any kind of fabric properties (rather than open work/lace) would weigh many pounds. (For comparison, the hooded sweatshirt I'm wearing is exactly 1.5 lbs.)
