What materials did you use? Handspun yarn

What are you most proud of? Spinning a stable boucle yarn and then successfully using it as warp in the scarf. The fiber used for the yarn was a merino/silk blend dyed by Dicentra Designs. Both the lace weight (the base for the boucle) and the boucle were plied with nylon sewing thread.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I gave this project a higher difficulty level because of the handspun yarn and because I used it as warp. I had to ease the yarn through the rigid heddle in some areas which meant every beat. But all in all it was exactly what I had envisioned.

Sounds like you put a lot of forethought, planning and work into this and it turned out beautifully.
