Log Cabin Scarf

I finished up the log cabin scarf, there are two mistakes in it. One was on the treadling, I had (2) too many brown ends between the shift of color and I didn't follow the lift plan as closely as I thought I did. Once I discovered my mistakes I was too far in to correct it all and didn't have enough extra warp to cut and redo. I just kept going until I finished. I understand what I did wrong and am planning a new warp for a table runner to do another log cabin.

I've also been playing around with my Structo, I've downloaded some drafts from and am working on
No. 5. Herring Bone.: J. and R. Bronson. I'm still working with the cotton warp that came with the loom and a darker beige cotton I had. It looks good and I'm learning to follow the lift plan as I go along. I also checked out of the library "Learning to Weave" by Deborah Chandler. There is a ton of info there that is great for new weavers, especially as I come from RH weaving, which I'm finding is totally different to weaving on the 4 shaft tiny loom. I'm learning and having fun with it and that's what's important.

The scarf turned out beautifully! It is chilly enough to wear the scarf here-who woulda thought?!
