A series of scarves I weave with thrums was featured in the March/April 2020 edition of Heddlecraft magazine. Although these projects are quite different than much of my weaving, I am glad I have a series of projects which helps me use up the waste yarn created in the weaving process. These projects can be used as scarves, table runners or over the back of a chair. I enjoyed writing up these projects, including the recipe for creating them, and also writing about my weaving process in general because it helped me reflect on my process.
