Something For Me

I have been weaving for almost 2 years now and finally decided to take the time and weave something for myself. And here it is:

It was based on the design from this scarf, so again, the warp is mainly 50% bamboo (black) / 50% cotton (black/brown 2 ply) and the weft is 100% bamboo (black). But in the warp I added a few threads of lemongrass and pompeii bamboo with some tweeded silk.

After twisting the fringe, I tossed it in the washing machine, on the hand-wash cycle, and spun the water out. Then I dried it, laying it out flat on some towels. Finished and dry, it's about 82" long :)
