Friday was a good day. I was alone at home for most of the day and finished my socks (no pictures yet) and finally sat down by the wheel and plied the singles (2ply, after all - no pictures, the yarn is drying) and in the evening finally cut off the fabric from the loom. I steamed the fabric very thoroughly and tied the ends. And took it outside for pictures today.
The pattern - as already mentioned before - is from Finnish handicraft magazine, Taito, from issue 1/2006. There the pattern is called Nougat-shawl and is done with white and two shades of brown. The yarn I used is Pirkka (all wool, tex 125x2), it is not a soft yarn but I would imagine that this shawl would wear well. The size of the shawl is 86 cm x 202 cm (abt 34" x 80"). The reed size was 50/1, which is a sort of gauge in weaving I guess, and means that there are 5 yarns/cm (would that be size 12 in US?). (This is a bit difficult yet, I know the knitting terms quite well in English, but the weaving terms are all new to me. Correct me if I don't seem to have a clue of what I'm talking about...)
This fabric reminds me of Chanel jackets somehow. Its both sides are totally different from each other. I'm not sure which side I like the best, the stars or the chains. Really, I like them both and am very very happy with both sides.
