And her Scarf Stopped the Traffic, by Meg Nakagawa



This scarf ended up being "funky" at 160EPI by accident. Because of several interruptions in my life this summer, a plan for an installation piece turned into a set of delicate stoles, which in turn turned into three very closely sett scarves because I had the wrong reed in the beater! I had to rethink and rework the draft several times because that sounded much easier than resleying 1530+ ends. But I also managed to include 25 colors in the warp, which was a challenge I had given myself.

I used 2/60 Nm mercerized cotton both ways for this piece. One scarf was in our recent Funky Fibre exhibition.

Thank you, Sue. At the time I thought it was a once in a life time experience, but I don't think so. I'm itching to explore more of the fine/crammed hand.
