Queen Manatee

Queen Manatee

from Studio MME
I did bad work on the crown. I need to take those stitches out and correct it. But I wanted this to be finished in May.

woven scarf

This scarf is 80" long and about 12" wide.

It's amazing how much less yarn that weaving uses compared to knitting or crocheting.

The warp is Deborah Norville Serenity Garden Yarn in Hibiscus and the weft yarn is Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable Yarn in Sunrise.

Ultimately, I want to weave with Noro Kureyon.
