Two scarves done, madness following

The two scarves are now off the loom and washed. The brown one is 140 cm long. The only thing I don't like about it is the breaks between the patterns. I'm also not quite sure how I want to do the fringing, but that can at least wait until it's dry...

The green one is only 115 cm long, but I am rather enamoured of the effects (particularly on the centre pattern):

And the other side is interesting too:

The only repeats in the pattern are a couple of sections of zigzags, and the mirror image on the second half. It was a little firm before washing, but it seems to have softened up nicely with washing.

And now that they've been cut off I'm planning to re-thread the rest of the warp to make a waffle scarf. I suspect I'm at least a little mad (it's only 105 ends though, so not really too bad).

These are really pretty. The turquoise is my favorite.

Yay! It looks darned good from over here. I especially love the two-scarves-in-one aspect. And I like the teal color.
