My Sixth Weaving Project

Sixth weaving project 
I got the loom warped and started weaving yesterday!  This is another scarf using fingering weight yarn.  I'm using the 12 dent heddle.  Both yarns are Madelinetosh Tosh Sock which is a fat fingering weight 2 ply yarn.  I've used it for knitting before, but this is the first time I've used it for weaving.  The warp is Charcoal and the weft is Mare.  Unfortunately, because of the darkness of the colors I'm using, they aren't photographing very well.  It is going to be a dark scarf, but there is black, brown, navy and gray in the Mare colorway and the camera isn't wanting to pick it up.  I'm happy with the way it's looking as I weave it, but this will probably be a series of blog posts looking dark and gloopy.  It reminds me a bit of Hollywood's depiction of Victorian England at night - the color scheme to Penny Dreadful maybe?  On the other hand, blogging issues aside, it will be perfect for the person I'm weaving it for, and that's the most important thing.
