Here they are, warts and all:
Fringed Cotton Blanket
I wove this beautiful blanket quite awhile ago and the rest of the batch has gone to different homes. This blanket is rich greens and light browns in herringbone with two shades of purple in the wide stripes of complex diamonds.

My error was to hastily cut apart this blanket from its neighbour without leaving fringe until I gulped when I realized what I'd done. So 6" (15 cm) of this blanket is missing its fringe but the hem is secure and should be fine for years of use. (And no, I have not done that again!)

Unfortunately, I didn't notice there were two shades of the purple until I finished the scarf and looked at it and ... whoops. What you see below is a slight difference in the purple's intensity and the silk's weight (possibly why the dye was taken up differently). This is at one end of the blanket scarf, so it could be easily tucked in and out of view when being worn. This blanket scarf is a bit heavier than the others I've made and it is rather gorgeous and elegant other than the dyelot error below.

Please let me know if you want to see more photos of the three items or order anything here. I'd love to see these nice-but-not-perfect items find new homes!
