On Saturday I gave a demonstration on warping a rigid heddle loom at the Ventura County Handweavers Guild.  Then in the afternoon we had a class on using sock yarn to weave scarves that create lovely patterns with almost no effort.  The self striping sock yarns make scarves that look like you spent a lot of time planning out a pattern when actually the yarn does all the work for you.  How fun is that?
Today we spend the day making scarves from everyone's stash yarns. That's always a great time seeing what each person brings and how it can all be put together into beautiful patterns.  Sometime starting with a yarn that isn't a favorite can result in something truly wonderful.  

Having fun in the Stash Scarf class for the Ventura County Handweavers Guild.

Yarns for Elisa's next project!
