Stashbuster Scarf

What are you most proud of? When I started weaving this scarf, I chose coordinating colors from my stash. It looked so boring that I took the plunge and started choosing anything that caught my eye. Believe it or not, choosing so randomly was a big step for me. What are you most proud of? When I started weaving this scarf, I chose coordinating colors from my stash.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Go for it--don't worry about which yarns to use. It is a perfect opportunity to see what different yarns can look like in the weaving process. What advice would you give someone starting this project?

Q&A with jillyc

PamelaMarie asked:
Wow, this scarf is so inspiring. I like how you communicated your thought process on picking from your stash. I have a 4 harness floor loom and now I wish I had a rigid heddle loom. Ahh! I like the ease of warping on RH loom. Thank you for sharing. And, keep going with your creativity,
jillyc answered:
.Thank you so much for your kind words. I love the RH loom. Actually, I have a much better stash now after taking Craftsy knitting classes, and I'm ready to do another stashbuster.
