Disappointment to Delight

Dear Mom,
I took that stubby woven scarf disaster and turned it into a lovely cowl!

I could almost pretend I planned it this way, it turned out so nice.

Using a length of the warp thread, I hand stitched the ends together into a flat felled seam. (Thank you Mrs. Roos and high school tailoring class!)  Actually, the first thing I did was add a twist to the scarf so that it would become a moebius ring when the ends were stitched together.

The nice thing about adding that twist is that the scarf/cowl will hang flat when worn under a coat.

And the cowl had just enough length to allow me to wear it doubled around my neck, too.

I now have plans for those single skeins of hand spun, hand dyed yarns I've been producing!
