Beaded Fringe Scarf

By Leigh

Ta-dah! I've actually finished something! My summer & winter beaded fringe scarf....

Finished S&W beaded fringe scarfTo relax after working hard all day, DH and I have resumed a long time habit - he reads aloud while I do handwork. He just finished reading Little Britches by Ralph Moody to me, and I just finished my scarf.

I've already written quite a bit about this scarf. You can find the project details here, and details about the fringe, here.

What a lovely, clean looking pattern. And I like the beaded fringe. I may have to try that--everything is better with beads!

It's lovely! I want to try summer winter sometime!

I used to think I didn't like beads. Now, It think maybe I like them. I like your scarf anyway, so I guess it depends how the beads are used.

Benita said...

Wow! All that work on the house and you still have the energy to weave - I am impressed!!!

Julie said...

Very pretty!!

Lynnette said...

Your scarf looks very elegant and classic and of course I LOVE the beads! I think beads can add just a little bit of shine when needed and they are something you won't find scarf made in an off shore factory! I'm so glad you finished it.

Lovely! I am glad you are getting to weaving-related activities with all your house settling in.

Great blog. I'm trying to motivate myself to weave again, and your blog is tempting me...
Could you suggest a good source for designs/patterns, something online for weaving like knitting has Twist Collective, Knitty, and such?

Your scarf is beautiful!!!

I just listen to audio books. How lucky to have someone to read to you.!!! Happy to hear you're taking some time off.

You are so much better at making good use of your time than I am - that scarf is absolutely wonderful.

How pretty that is -

I just reserved a couple of books on CD to listen to while I spin. I thought that sounded like fun. The first one is Madeline L'Engle A Wrinkle in Time - I read it several years ago, but a friend recommended listening to it because the author reads it herself and I guess she is very entertaining with the voices that she comes up with :-)

We just had a sprinkle of rain - but the temp is supposed to start going up into the high 80's by mid next week!

Snuggles to your fur babies. T.

The scarf is lovely Leigh and I love the beads on the fringe.

Leigh said...

Gosh, I figured everyone had pretty much given up on checking my blog because I'm rarely here anymore!

I listed to audio books too while I work. I have to be careful though, and chose a project that doesn't require too much concentration. I've had to do my share of un-doing because of that!

Dorothy, I never thought of myself as a bead person either, but I really like the way this turned out.

Janet, I'm delighted you're thinking about weaving again! The best online source that I know of is Handweaving.net, but All Fiber Arts has weaving patterns too.

Peg, at this point I doubt we'll ever be settled in ;)

You are my hero, Leigh! I have been so very distracted by "summer-stuff" that I haven't finished much of anything this summer.
And, as always, this is a beautiful example of why you have a reputation for being a fantastic weaver.
Good onya, mate.
