“A true friend is someone who thinks that you are a good egg even though he knows that you are slightly cracked.” – Bernard Meltzer

Or, a friend is somebody who lets you keep borrowing their truck to do stuff like move other friends or pick up looms purchased off craigslist. In partial thanks for the truck lending, Elizabeth received this Doctor Who-length bamboo scarf.

Elizabeth's Doctor Who Length Scarf

I wove it extra long so she can wrap it around twice. I used three shades of green bamboo (mint, spruce, rosemary) alternating with “cloud” bamboo, all from Silk City Fibers by way of Shuttles.

The pattern is from the bottom of p. 71 of Handweavers Pattern Directory by Ann Dixon. Either there is something wrong with the pattern, or I’ve threaded or treadled it wrong, but the pattern doesn’t turn out like the photo in the book. No worries, I’ve woven 5 different things using this pattern, and whether I’m getting it wrong or the book is wrong I don’t care – because I like the resulting design.
