Sometimes less is more. I have been pondering finishing techniques and embellishments for this scarf all night and this morning I experimented with a couple of techniques and in the end I decided to do...nothing. The more I played with the scarf the less I wanted to do anything to it. Yeah, the edges aren't great, but they aren't too bad, and there are a couple of places where the warp threads didn't drop, or my beat wasn't consistent, but overall it is a lovely piece and I am going to leave it just as it is and where it with pride. Here is a shot of the obverse side of the weaving.
I will probably do another one, and add in all of the finishing details that were not included in this one, but I will do it in another fiber. The JaggerSpun Zephyr is a bit clingy, and not as soft against the skin as I like.
