Weaving a little magic

So many months ago I bought some yarn to make Alyssa a scarf.  It's Maleficent in Sparkle Gnome from GnomeAcres.  It's gorgeous yarn and I was really excited to make her something special for her move to Florida and her new life...Then, as you know, all hell broke loose, I got divorced, moved across the country and that yarn hid out in a basket until a couple of weeks ago.

I was, of course, looking for my tapestry needles (which happened to be in my purse because that's where every knitter carries her tapestry needles, don't you know!) and found a bag of yarn--2 packages of which had never been opened.  Club yarns from Dragonfly and Cookie A from August.  I was so thrilled to see them, touch them and mourn for the sadness that was my life at that time.  Then I put them in my special place and will get them out in my 2015 year of the clubs!

Anyway, back to Maleficent.  I knew I wanted to weave this scarf and was really excited this "weekend" to finally sit down at the loom and get it started.

I just have to say that it's gorgeous on the loom.  Can't wait to see it off of the fact, I think I'm going to do some fancy tied fringe to bring about the full magical effect.

Happy Monday every body!  It's my Wednesday!


  1. Purples are so pretty this time of year. Green and purple even better!

  2. I like the colors and the zigging and zagging.
