Weaving With Hand-spun

Earlier this year I spun 8 oz of a Merino/Silk blend into a 2-ply lace weight yarn for a weaving project. I warped 24 epi and wove a herringbone pattern for a wide scarf. I need to finish twisting the fringe but I am happy with the end result, even though I miss calculated on the amount I needed for weft, leaving the finished shawl shorter than I wanted. I spun two bobbins and plied from the bobbins.

The fiber was purchased from Alisha Goes Around at DFW Fiber Fest in March. I had the yarn spun by the end of April, the loom warped by the end of June and the shawl off the loom by the middle of August.
