Handwoven November/December 2011

This issue is dedicated to demystifying block weaves. Nearly all the projects in this issue use the same 2-block profile draft, but each use a different weave structure including doublweave, Halvdräll, Taqueté, and more!

Other featured projects include a coverlet woven in summer and winter, piano keyboard scarves, and ply-split baskets.

Can someone help me find the yarns for the wool/silk piano scarf on page 67 of the Nov/Dec 2011 Handwoven issue? The instructions refer to Jaggerspun 24/2 wool and Jaggerspun 18/2 wool/silk. I found the 20/2 spun silk on Webs. Thanks!
