I'm a Scarf Weaving Machine!

I wove the third scarf on this warp today.  I wasn't exactly thrilled with the piece and kept walking away, being distracted, but I finished the piece after diner; this last one I used the same purple and the darker orange in weft.  One or two more to go on this warp. 

For the time being, I'm so over Log Cabin, or these small cashmere scarves, or my jack loom named Jack.  I am having great fun with these colors, but I feel like doing something else next. But I will stay on track until I finish this warp. 

Nevertheless, I have this picture in my head of weaving a piece in Log Cabin with a bunch of different color combinations, perhaps in skinny shiny cotton, in tiny units, so the cloth is like a collection of gazillion little squares and rectangles.  This may take some time to weave but I want to be more creative on the four-shaft Jack, and I think there is nothing like a deceptively simple weave structure to please, well, me, really.  

Drawing tomorrow morning.  I'm sure it'll be great.
