Scarf number one is done!

So my first silk hiro scarf is complete. It was a nice feeling pulling it off the loom last night. I finished the fringe up today and sewed in all the ends and it turned out really nice... Except I over compensated for the shrinkage part and ended up with a 98" long scarf (before the 6" fringe is added on each end). It's SOOOOO long. But it actually wraps around my neck twice and then it seems to be a wonderful length. So it will definitely keep your neck warm.

I am planning on selling it at 1810 Carter House this summer where I will be working. The price tag will be more than people will likely expect to pay, but that's ok. If it doesn't sell this summer, I'm sure it will eventually.
