Hudson Bay Stripes

My Dad really likes the Hudson Bay stripe pattern. I made him a scarf. It's pretty wide for a scarf, but I love the way it turned out. I used the Orlec thread. I really love that stuff. Too bad it is so hard to get. This pattern used lots of white, navy, light yellow and red.
My next project will be a tartan. It will use the blue, red and green. I can't wait to get started.

I ordered new thread several weeks ago. It still isn't here, but my loom is ready for when it does arrive. My next project has a white warp and I've got the white Orlec thread so I spent a few days getting the loom set up.

Now we are waiting..... I really was hoping it would come sooner. I wanted to have my next project done by Friday, but it isn't going to happen now. I guess I need to contact the company. It shouldn't have taken this long.

Waiting, waiting, waiting.....

Getting ready

I ordered more thread a week or so ago. It isn't here yet, but I decided there is no reason to wait on the warp for my next project. I have the thread for the warp and yesterday I got it going on the warping board. I've got 150 threads on the warping board. I need to do about 75 more. I'll try and get the loom warped today or tomorrow. Probably tomorrow. Today is a crazy day.

I'm going to make another scarf. This one will be for my Dad. It will be mostly white, but at the ends of the scarf, there will be bands of dark blue, red, green and yellow. It's called the Hudson Bay pattern. I hope I can get the loom warped, the thread arrives and I can finish the scarf in 10 days, because that's when I go to visit my family.

We'll see.....
