Weaving thrums

Thrums1 (128k image)

I could not stand to throw away this ‘loom waste’ and finally got inspired and got out my 14″ triangle. It turned out just the right size for a cut-length tri and wove into a nice little napkin. It’s a bit small for a scarf, but there are many more thrums left so I could put several together. This is some nice soft linen left over from the upholstery material I wove for BIL’s chair. The loom has a 1/4″ sett but weaving this way gives me about 8 epi. I could also double it up a bit more to make it a little tighter if I wanted. The yarn is about 14 wpi to give you an idea, if you are thinking of your own left-overs.
